I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing.
1050hz is the tone sent out by the NWS for weather alerts.

No. Im talking about the tones that are sent out by Washington County Fire/EMS Control to alert us about weather coming our way.

Thanks Andrew
If you, or someone you know, has a pager that alerts on the storm tones, why not find someone who has the programming cradle for that brand and model of pager and just read the pager's codeplug?

1050 hz is also the frequency of one of the standard alert tones built into most dispatch consoles. Dispatchers can send the tone out prior to an important announcement. It's not a programmed, fixed time tone, but more just to catch people's attention. Every console I ever used had an alert tone button right next to the transmit button.

Just to be clear, this is not a Quick Call II paging tone, at least when used by dispatchers as a "heads up" tone.

The standard console alert tone is 1000 Hz, not 1050 Hz.

1047.1 Hz is a Motorola QCI tone (NB), which is why it wouldn't be used as a generic console alert tone. It's also the reason why you can still find 1047.1 Hz Vibrasponder reeds and Permacode filters for Minitor pagers that will open up on the NOAA frequencies when the 1050 Hz tone is transmitted.

Andrew,

There are several sets of tones that are sent out for weather warnings. There is the Department of Public Safety Group Tone for DPS Staff, the County Civil Defense Tones (Weather Tones), and the All Fire Group Tone and All EMS Group Tone.

You may send me a PM and I can assist you.

If you are officially a member of an affected squad, try asking the County about the channels through which you can get such info. I'm sure they'd be happy to provide such info to the people in charge of your squad.

Yes, that information has been provided to all agencies in the County.
