The freq and tone is listed as 'Los Angeles' in the database, however... this afternoon I'm only hearing service calls and units in Santa Clarita.

Last year I asked if anyone had insight as the usage of the VHF-Lo frequencies as they often are patched together, or seemingly have assigned coverage areas switched around making monitoring confusing.

I've been following LAFD for more than 35 years and I've never heard of a LAFD 47 MHz (Special Emergency) frequency. Maybe the City's old Receiving Hospital ambulance frequency prior to LAFD taking over in 1970?

Maybe I am wrong, who uses the frequency that is closest to Ventura ?

The only current (since 2002) licensee on 47.46 in L.A., Santa Barbara and Ventura counties is AMR.

ANAVAGH, LAFD moved to 800MHz *decades* ago.

The only agencies licensed to use this frequency in California are American Medical Response, American National Red Cross, City of La Quinta, Gold Oak USD, Klamath Trinity JUSD.

The closest user to Ventura is American Medical Response in Santa Clarita.

I missed that thread but many years ago I pulled several of their low band freqs out of one of their radios (GE Orion) and put it in the DB. I'm not sure if it's changed as I haven't followed any modifications but FWIW on the data's history.
