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.
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.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.
