None of my sources were available today but this is what I do know.
I checked the FCC uls site and verified Lumpkin county recently (late 2012) renewed their licenses and narrow banded the radio systems for both agencies. The license types indicate the same conventional (read analog) frequencies. So I don't think they went trunked or digital.
On the base radio I can only hear Fannin co. Fire/EMS. I also entered the other fire/EMS listed frequencies for Lumpkin but have heard nothing so far.
LCSO monitoring indicates they can hear fireband but i don't know how yet. I'll wait for my contacts to see if they know. Hopefully it's just a temporary issue with the repeater.

I saw some DMR emission designators when I looked it up yesterday (it wasn't the newest license) but I don't know what the freqs are used for and for that matter they also had NFM designators too so I don't know.

So far I have not been able to get any info. I still have some sources looking though. After monitoring the listed frequencies on the FCC database I have heard nothing of consequence.
If anyone knows anybody with info please shoot me a PM. in the meantime I'll keep looking.

Default Lumpkin County Fire

According to the most recent update for Lumpkin County Fire/EMS, they are now dispatching on a new frequency - 155.055. Does anybody know what the PL code is? It's very annoying trying to SEARCH for it because you have to listen to Clayton County's Sheriff Dispatch, who shares the same frequency (PL - 107.2).
