Default Bexar County Fire Alarm Pager Tones

I'm going to start trying to put together a list of pager tones for Bexar County Fire Alarm. So far I've got the following:

Geronimo Village Station 1 (District 2) Station 121 1687.5 1004.7

If anyone can please do help fill in the blanks so we can update the Wiki:

http://wiki.radioreference.com/index...xar_County_(TX)

If you don't feel comfortable editing the Wiki update this thread with some of your findings and I'll make sure they make it to the Wiki.

Thanks!

ps - I have a few Motorola Minitor 4 SV tone out pagers that I got off of eBay and want to also
have the 2 out of the planned 4 WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction) ie HAZMAT response teams .
So, now I only have 2 or the 4 sets of tones programmed and would like to enter the 2 other sets
and would be very interested in programming the other BCFA WMD station # 156 tones if known ?
So for now I just have BCFA stations 142 & 155 entered and am open to any interesting ideas, etc.
I believe 155 is the Bexar-Bulverde WMD team and BCFA 156 is the Leon Springs team not sure ?

BCFA Station # 155 WMD Tone A = 1679.7 ish Tone B = 1685.8 ish ( these are the tones I captured)
BCFA Station #156 WMD Tones ? (Questions=what dept does S#156 and what are the tone-outs ?)

It seems like the right parenthesis did not become part of the above link.

Link: Wiki: Bexar County (TX)

Hope this helps,

Question Any New Updates for HAZMAT (WMD) Tone-Out Sets ?

Does anyone have or know any updates for the 2 known special WMD/HAZMAT BCFA stations ?
BCFA Station # 155 = Bexar-Bulverde's WMD/Hazmat and #156 = Leon Springs WMD/Hazmat Team
I am running the Commtekk 2-Tone Decoder II program hoping to eventually log and solve this mystery !
Any opinions or info regarding whether these stations still exist ? or if they have an A&B or just a B tone?
I sure wish they had regular roll call pager testing kinda of like the weekly MEDCOM Friday 9am roll calls.
These stations are so very rarely toned out so I do know to be patient and check my logs daily and someday bingo

Post Thanks ComTekk ! ~ 1 team ID'd & 1 team left to ID :)

Well a little persistence finally paid off as I logged and confirmed the BCFA WMD/Hazmat Team 155 Tone Out !
I used ComTekks Multi Decoder 2.03 program which logs tone-outs and also records associated dispatch audio.
The ComTekk Multi Decoder 2.03 is far superior to the ComTekk 2-Tone Decoder II for accuracy and Log Viewing.
This program is awesome and when the "Standard" detection mode is selected the "Measured" tones
are automaticaly error corrected to match the valid Motorola Tone Table Chart saving both time and guess work !
Next, I programmed my Motorola Minitor IV Stored Voice pagers that alerted perfectly Friday Feb 12 at 13:42pm.

I already updated the Bexar Co Wiki with the following edited section to aid local users in programming.
In the future after I nail down the final funded and valid BCFA Hazmat/WMD Team 156 I will post the tones.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All Depts - Special Notices & CAD Issues ALL None 1006.9
Bexar Co Rehab - OnScene Support Vehicles 149 810.2 496.8
Bexar/Bulverde FD Based- Hazmat/WMD Team 155 600.9 496.8
Leon Springs FD Based - Hazmat/WMD Team 156 UnID'd 496.8

Note: Hazmat/WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction) Teams have specialized equipment
used for Toxic Chemical Spills, Biological and Nuclear Weapons Type Public Disasters.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Down below the 2 program images is the ZIP file of actual Bexar Co Fire Alarm WMD Team 155 dispatch as paged Friday 2/12/16 @ 13:42pm !
SAFD Hazmat was called out on a suspicious package call so WMD Team 155 was placed on standby for a suspicious odor in downtown San Antonio area ~ Take a Listen Also note: My screenshots of Multi Decoder is during a Leon Springs station 132 call today and 2-Tone Decoders
screen image is just for a basic comparison in features and both are NOT from the WMD Team 155 call I could not capture since I was at work.

Well 3 months after installing Comtekks Multi-Decoder on my PC logging the Bexar County Fire Alarm
I review and listen to as many as 100 Fire Tone Out Dispatches on a daily basis in my effort to better
document each depts unique Fire Tone Out data that activates their radios and or pagers for their calls.
So I have already updated the Bexar Co Wiki page and also wanted to post the updates to this thread.
Also, as noted I have not logged any tones for Jarrett (station#130) so are they now part of a district ?
Further, for programming Minitor 3 & 4 Pagers for BCFA ALL Depts Alerting Dispatches, you must
program a single tone of 1006.9 in a single tone Call 5 or 6 slot since it's a special 6 sec Long B tone.
If you just program in 1006.9 in Call Positions 1,2,3 or 4 in either Tone A's or Tone B's slot it will only
be treated as a standard 4 second long tone and your pager will NOT alert for BCFA's ALL Dept pages!
Lastly, I am still patiently waiting to capture the missing Tone A for the HAZMAT/WMD Team 156
So scan down my list and see if you notice a few changes and yes even a few new stations #'s added

Thank You Lindsay ! Yes I had updated the Wiki first and then pasted it here as it appears in the Wiki

btw ~ Next, I need to focus my resources on the Comal Co FD tones as listed incorrectly in the CCo Wiki
they are a real mess. It should not take to long to sort out what like 6 different "Zones" as they call them?

Note: These are invalid / skewed Fire Tone Outs as they currectly appear in the Comal Co Wiki page:
All I can say is "Ouch" ! Perhaps someone well meaning thought that Unidens "Tone-Out" search mode
would do the trick and not have any skewing and or doppler effect ? Yes I used to be one of those people

Comal Co Fire Dispatch on 154.2950 PL Tone = 203.5 I'll try to decode tones from my house or get closer ?

Bulverde: Tone A 726.8, Tone B 553.9
Bulverde SB-EMS: Tone A 799.0, Tone B 950.0 ( Neither A or B are valid Motorola Tones or even close !)
Bracken Fire: Tone A 799.0, Tone B 1232.0 ( Neither A or B are valid Motorola Tones or even close !)
Spring Branch: Tone A 799.0, Tone B 1036.0 ( Neither A or B are valid - B might be 1034.7 who knows ?)
Canyon Lake Fire: Tone A 553.9, Tone B 584.8
Canyon Lake EMS: Tone A 553.9, Tone B 6174 (Hmm, maybe B is actually 617.4 not 6174, typo error ? )

Post Thanks ComTekk ! ~ 2 for 2 ~ We now have Both teams ID'd :)

Well a lot of persistence finally paid off as today I confirmed our other BCFA WMD/Hazmat Team 156 Tone Out !
I've been patiently reviewing daily an average of 75 BCFA calls for 5 months awaiting a Station 156 Tone Out !
So who would have thought that both of our funded BCFA WMD/Hazmat teams 155 & 156 used the same tones ?
I already updated the Bexar Co Wiki with the following edited section to aid local users in programming.

Bexar County Fire Alarm Tone-Outs for programming Scanners and Pagers

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: Hazmat/WMD(Weapons of Mass Destruction)Teams have specialized equipment
used for Toxic Chemical Spills, Biological and Nuclear Weapons Type Disasters.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well case closed just in time for the 4th of July festivities
You all have a safe celebration of America's 240th Birthday

Note: I have attached both BCFA Hazmat calls below in Zipped MP3 format for anyone to have a listen !
Also below are 2 local news stories about the 5 car derailment and 3 of those train cars spilling the sodium hydroxide chemical.

Post BCFA - Jarrett VFD Station 130 tones finally confirmed.

While I was reviewing BCFA - Dispatch Tone-Outs I spotted something rare in my 6 months of logging.
Low and behold on 9-1-16 at 11:24am I finally see Jarrett Station # 130 get dispatched to an EMS call.
Sometime back I posted a list for Bexar Co Fire with a question as to whether Jarrett 130 was still valid.
Does anybody have any thoughts as to why they don't receive more calls ? Did they just get re-funded?
So it's confirmed and the Tone-Outs in the Bexar Co Wiki are up to date. Here is an updated list below.
