Default Rankin County Volunteer Fire Department Channels

I am a volunteer firefighter with Cleary Heights Volunteer Fire Rescue and I just bought me a radio off ebay and would like to go on and get it programmed. If anyone knows all the frequencies that I should have on my radio including the Tac channels please reply.

If you are a vol FF then go to thr chief and he will probably send you to Jackson Comm to have it programmed.

So will I be able to access our Tac channels with a Motorola HT1000 VHF because that sounds like I need a better radio. Please reply asap!

No. That radio will only be able to get the VHF Dispatches. You need an Motorola Legacy Smart Zone (800 MHz) Trunking capable radio, (MTS, XTS series etc) that will have to be programmed by Rankin County. There are some very cool ones on ebay, and other sources, including the classifieds forums on the website here. Just be advised that Rankin County will be upgrading to an P25 system, possibly even joining the MSWIN in the next few years as Motorola is ending support for the current system they use.

You need an 800 Mhz radio, if you are a member of the volunteer fire dept you should be familiar with the type of system you all are on; your chief can advise you further...

Ok I have talked to my chief and he really don't know anything about the system he said his radio was given to him by the county so he uses it. I really don't have the budget for the radio but need one being as I am a captain. I am really oblivious to radios myself so if anyone knows of an under $100 radio that will work on the Cleary Ops channel that would be great please suggest!

Milf posted some radios that will do what you want. I'm sure you can even find sub-$100 radios like the MTS2000 on eBay.

That said, would I trust a radio I bought off of eBay in a life threatening situation? Probably not. I would think you would open yourself up to a world of liabilities using that radio to direct others in your role as a Captain.

I would check with the radio shop that programs your radios to see if they will even program it for you. Many shops will not even touch a personal radio because of the liabilities. Programming it yourself is not an option either.

ClearyFire44--I was trying to contact you to advise you of what you need to do but you don't accept email or PM's--if you get an 800 MHz then take it to where I said and they will program it for little of nothing---if you would allow PM's then I would be happy to explain more---hard to believe that the chief or someone else in Cleary doesn't know anything about the system---how about Florence. I have an 800 MHz with Rankin Fire and tac channels and was cleared to have it..
