Today 01/26/2012 @ 12:30 pm Pacific
RX Location Just East of Lake Tahoe,NV
Using Uniden BCT-15
LMR-400 Coax
Tram VHF Gain Antenna tuned for 154.0000 mhz.

Picking up Repeater Traffic on "154.4150 mhz Tone 103.5"
Engine-53 "Bryte/Bright I.C." Calling in Second Alarm Brush Fire to "Camino Disp"
Requesting Southwest Gas to respond.
Then radio traffic went silent.
Could not hear Camino, but numerous transmissions from Engine-53.
I am assuming this might be "Training", but i can not find any info on a repeater that
Camino would be using on this freq or anything remote unless im overlooking it.
Southwest Gas is mostly in Nevada,Arizona.
Napa County Repeater uses Tone 131.8 and ive heard them here also and that is not them.
Butte County Repeater uses Tone 123.0 and this is not what i heard either.
Anybody know what this freq is?
Its the first time ive ever heard it here.

It was a little time later that i heard to Grass Valley ECC "North Tahoe Engine-53, Medic-53 back at Station on 154.1300 NEU East.

The tone 103.5 is the input tone for Mt Rose on NEU East and the fact that tone was also being used on 154.4150 maybe because it stayed the same when switching to tac channel? Just a guess because ive noticed this happens a lot up here when they go simplex.

It did per the timing occur to me that they were training using the North Tahoe Fire Tac, because the info heard really didnt make complete sense.

Camino ECC and Southwest Gas Corp i dont believe come anywhere near each other as Areas of Coverage, so i figured this was a simulated event maybe with no script?

The only thing i have not figured out is the Squelch Tail and brief hangtime indicating to me as a repeater.
Having only heard one side of Comms from Engine-53/Brite I.C., i thought maybe a Extender was being used for wider coverage.

This really is the only thing that makes sense to me.

Earlier last year Radio techs were working on the 154.4000 Repeater system that is now North Tahoe repeated fire tac (Former Primary NYP Frequency before NEU East), suggesting to me that they upgrading radios for Narrowband

So i believe it was the Tac Channel that was old Primary Tac (154.4150) to old NYP Channel (154.4000)

Im going to try and find out if they do use a Extender or Portable Repeater.

So i do agree that your post is the logical answer along with the fact that Engine-53's timing back at station meant done with training?

I will be listening on and off as usual and may get the facts in the future.

Found FCC License Data for 154.4150 mhz/103.5 ctcss

North-Tahoe-Fire-Protection-District

Frequency--Input--------License------Type-Tone---Description-----------------------Mode
154.4150---156.1050---WPPC477--BR---103.5--NTFPD/Fire-Tac-Repeater--FM

Tac Repeater Location:
Station#53 Dollar Point (Tahoe City).
Corner of Obsevation Dr & Panorama Dr.
Antenna is on the roof (Low Level).
Power is 50 Watts.
That would explain the low signal strength.
