Question Cy-FAIR VFD -Houston Texas

I'm in the Cy-Fair VFD area. And have programed all their frequencies in, and don't hear a lot. I've seen their EMS Supervisors vehicle and have noticed different antennas in the roof?

Are they up on the new system? I have west I-10 programmed and talk a lot. Are their more frequencies for cyfair?

Thanks in advance.

as far as Fire/EMS Dispatch and Incidents they are all on the UHF conventional system depending on the time of day they are really active they do run an LTR system but its all voice inversion used and i believe only admins use the system

Routine dispatch and fireground ops are all on the UHF conventional channels, primarily on 1/Dispatch, 3, 4, and 5. Everything else is for admin/back channel talk, training, or special events. 1960 Fireground is routinely used for fireground at major incidents and Lifeflight landings, but since it's a simplex channel you won't hear much unless you're nearby.

EMS supervisors and district chiefs have multiple radios in their trucks for interop with surrounding agencies at mutual aid events.
