    Sussex County - Wantage FD

    Does anyone have more information on the new Wantage FD freq grant. It looks like a VHF-Hi repeater based system 154.3175 (input 159.2175). What's interesting is that the license is for both typical NFM and also for NXDN. I've monitored for the past few days and haven't picked up anything...

    Toronto Fire P25 Timeline

    Is there a time line yet as to when we can expect to see TFS do a full move to the Toronto P25 system? I ask as it is in the 700MHz and if I were to buy an XTS 2500 for 800MHz I believe the new 700MHz P25 system would be out of band.

I THINK it might be the Cosumnes CSD Fire Department Training Facility (who recently started a new academy class). 5808 - Referred to on-air as "OPS-1" 5840 - Referred to...
