To my understanding Rockdale County Fire and National EMS has moved to a new system some months ago and my Uniden Home Patrol could not pick them up any longer.

My question is, is there anyway to hear them at all with the exception of getting a department radio which will not happen.

Thanks for any help.

i "think: national EMS is not radio anymore. their center is right next to a job i work at teaching disability clients computer instruction. i dont even see a small antenna on their trucks anymore. heck, i dont even see mobile units in the trucks or portables on the EMT's when they get frequently called to my job. only a Otterbox encased phone that looks like Sprint Connect or something along those lines.

their main dispatch is patched in from Conyers and Rockdale County then National EMS calls the appropriate unit via Sprint Connect or private forms of comms. i do know that national has at least 1 unit at each station. Rockdale will dispatch via their radios, and national gets the relay that they were sent out. several more sit at their base which Emory AirMED East sits behind it, with their AS-350D.

i see no active listings for national at all .

I believe this information is incorrect as I know someone there and they are on the same frequency as Rockdale Fire and then they have their own tac channels.
They still work off portable's (XTS 2500) and the ambulance's still have their mobiles.
I'm not sure about the antenna situation though.
