Default New Britain fireground

I picked up New Britain Fire using 769.053125 as the fireground at a two alarm fire tonight off Broad St. I had to be right on scene to pick it up.

You might want to verify that 769.053125 iscorrect. That would be 3.125 kHz away from 769.05625 which is one of the public safety nationwide itinterant low power channels.

I was searching the 700 bands at the scene to find out what they were using and that frequency came on twice. It did seem off to me but that was all I received. I will narrow the search now that im in the ballpark but that could take some time. I need to be right on scene of a fire to hear them.

PL/DPL tones would be nice if you get them

If I could figure out how to do that I will. I also agree that it could be 769.056250 because the 769.053125 I picked them up on would have been the first stop on a search. I only heard two transmissions from the DC and one engine because I was searching a long list of frequencies. Now that im close I could fine tune my search next time.

This didn't take long. New Britain had another 2-alarm fire this morning on Allen St and I got the right FG frequency. It is 769.05250, CTCSS 156.7

Thanks firerick100, The first time I was searching with the scanner it was in the dark at night. I couldn't see that great. This time it was light out.
