Question Is The New Berlin FD UHF Still Used?

Hi to all,

I'm curious...does the New Berlin FD still use the UHF frequency (453.325) for paging purposes? I know they migrated to the Waukesha County TRS, but I am curious. I have quite a few UHF commercial radios in which this frequency is programmed, and would like to know if I need to remove this frequency or not. I've tried looking through previous threads, but my findings have been inconclusive. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

New Berlin FD no longer uses 453.325 for paging. Paging know conducted on 154.4300

They have used it for activating the outdoor warning sirens for many years so unless they modified that sirens, they are likely still using 453.325.

They switched from UHF to co. fire page about 5-7 ish months ago. The MSF500 that was previously used is off line and is being converted to a HAM repeater which will remain at its current location.

If I remember right, I heard NBFD UHF is history.
