Question Houston (TX) Fire & EMS Feed

With Hurricane Isaac's arrival, the Houston Fire & EMS feed was replaced by the Salt Grass Link amateur radio feed. Any idea on when the Houston Fire feed will return? Thanks!

That happened to coincide with HFD's (brief) switchover to the Houston Public Works P25 Phase II system. They're back on UHF now, but I doubt the feed provider will continue with the HFD feed.

the feed will not return for HFD I don't have a scanner that will monitor them and since this is brief before they return to x2 or P2 I don't see a reason to have it up just for that short amount of time.

Make that X2, not Phase 2.

Well you maybe in luch withh the new information in an email that I have gotten it says that we will be able to monitor them even with the HP-1 and others so if that happens and we should know befor the end of the year then I will put the feed back up for people to listen too including you. I just want to wait and make sure that we will be able to monitor them before i put it up so I don't have to bring it back down again.

Default More HFD Information

Yes, time will tell. There was an article in today's (9/16) Houston Chronicle about testing of the new digital system. It mentioned that scanners are not yet available. The new system is supposed to be in use by year end. I could not readily determine what will be done until the new system is fully up and running.

Question Houston (TX) Fire & EMS Feed Back!!

A big thanks to whomever got the HFD Fire & EMS scanner feed back on line. It is nice to have the dispatch channel back also. However, I do have a question. Is there a chance that channels TAC 7 and TAC 8 will be back? These are mainly used for fire calls and seem to be missing. Thanks!
