Default Chester County CFG-1

Does anyone know if the CFG 1 channel is a trunk channel or is it a conventional 800 repeater channel like the interops channels? In other words, Will a conventional 800 radio work on CFG 1? Or does it need to be an EFJohnson portable on the trunk system for it to work?

I am pretty sure that is a TG and not a conv. freq.

If bad sound were fatal Audio would be the leading cause of death!

CFG 1 is a talkgroup. Even though you cannot scan the system, talkgroups are listed for reference.on the trunked system database page. CFG is "Central FireGround". On the portable radios, it reads CFG 1.

If you hear them mention "FD 1" or "FD 2" those are simplex channels sometimes used for fireground ops.
