Smile New Niagara County Fire Frequencies

Does anyone know what Niagara County is doing with the new UHF frequencies for fire ?
I ran a search with the FCC data bank and I found all kinds of frequencies including in the 460 band. Just need some help. Thanks

As far as I know, they're still using Low-Band for Fire/EMS dispatches. Not sure what the UHF stuff is for. I'll have to check it out. I know the City itself uses UHF for most of their comms., but wouldn't the FCC have licensed it to the City of Niagara Falls?

Default niagara county fire new channels...

i've been hearing them on 423.8625 lately with callsign KEC990
Hearing dispatch and operations
I believe there is another UHF link channel as well for Niag county fire.
All of the old low band fire channels in the western new york area seem to have UHF link freqs these days...
Another fire service from the WNY area can be heard up here on 454.0875 poss. in Hamburg?
I'm across the lake near Toronto, Ontario

I've also noted activity on 425.8625. 423.8625 is simulcasting all transmissions on 46.06, which makes it possible to hear mobile units countywide since 46.06 is simplex. It seems like it might be some kind of range-extending repeater, because 423.8625 doesn't quite come in 5x5 here in Lockport like the other county frequencies.

These two frequencies are indeed licensed to the county as WQCC454. When the coordinator is broadcasting, they recently (last year or so) started identifying themselves as KEC990 and WQCC454. I also noted some testing of the repeater a few weeks ago, so it might not be considered fully operational yet.

And again, all of these that have been reported to me are listed on the NF2G Scannist Pages. Check Erie and Niagara county listings.
