    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

The Jefferson County EMA has 2 Frequencies, and a talk group channel on the Jefferson County Public Services Trunking System. the 2 Frequencies are:
KXK336: 154.025 (which also says something about Paging Rec. on the FCC database)
WNHT860: 453.300

The question i have is which frequency do they activate the sirens with? It looks like the sirens have VHF antennas on them. and they talk to the "stations on the net" during the first Wednesday of the month, and give out everything for Jefferson county (flood warnings, etc.) on 453.3 and 800mhz trunking, but i never hear anything on 154.025, which I am sure is simplex, because it's just one way communication (EMA-to-sirens), I was just wondering if I could set up some kind of Motorola Quick Call or DTMF alert feature if they have a siren activation tone, and what frequency to program it to.
