Is anyone using 33.94 any more? I think East Granby/Granby were the last on there but have since moved one... Haven't heard a peep in a long time.

North Granby (Lost Acres) fire still operates on 33.940. I believe they are dispatched by Simsbury. Also even though Simsbury has their 453.1625 repeater, they are still simulcasting their dispatch side of their communications over 33.940, probably for the older low band pagers. They aren't using a PL, so I'm sure they're hearing Waterford loud and clear. If I remember correctly, the PL commonly used on that frequency in Hartford County was 179.9 and that's the same PL Waterford operates... Never quite understood that.

Granby (Lost Acres FD) and East Granby are dispatched by Granby PD (Granby Base) using 33.94.

Lost Acres uses it for both dispatch and fireground, East Granby uses a VHF channel for operations, using 33.94 only for tones and when calling Granby Base enroute, on scene, etc.

Simsbury FD uses 453.1625 w/ the dispatch side only also heard on 33.94. (I heard 33.94 is only kept active for Jr FF pagers) They do usually monitor the low band but as 453.1625 is the primary frequency, they regularly walk over Granby & East Granby traffic.

Simsbury FD and Granby Base are backups dispatch for each other on 33.94.

East Granby

Chris,

I recall East Granby having a license on 155.4225 which is still listed in the database, but when I do an FCC query of either the frequency or the WQHA364 callsign it finds nothing. Are they actually using it? Is it a repeater and do you know the PL or DPL?

it was terminated because they did not notify the FCC that the system was operational. I would still monitor the VHF hi freqs.

yes from time to time Simsbury Base talks over Granby Base, when the simsbury dispatcher is aware of what they are doing they do not.
Also Simsbury still uses 33.94 for Knox box's and the sirens.
