VHF

FM 1 Ch. 1 BLS 155.280

Also a bit of Careflight Trivia I just learned from a tour there 2 weeks ago with my sons Cub Scout Pack:

Dauphins, by oldest to newest:

N63CF Sixth year of Program, Third Helicopter
N164CF Sixteenth year of program, Fourth Helicopter
N520CF Fifth Helicopter, Twentieth year of Program -and-
N625CF Sixth Helicopter, Twenty-Fifth year of Program

Interesting, Huh?

Careflight

Old Troy Pike Command was talking to careflight on 154.235. Johnson St Paris Fire District in Champaign County. The call was in the Christiansburg Fire Co area, but JSP provided mutual aid and setup the landing zone.

Also, 155.280 is used in Miami County for Careflight, it is patched to the Miami County Edacs system as needed.

FM3 seems to have changed lately. Can someone explain the Zone 27/28 thing to me? I've looked around for information, but I can't seem to figure it out.

off hand, the zone 27/28 sounds like the Zones found in a radio. Motorola calls their banks zones.
Some fire departments have map books that use designations like that also.

But just a guess on my part.

I know that it has to do with rebanding of some sort; Zone 27 is older, while Zone 28 is used by rebanded units.

Here's one of the examples I found (not too sure how it works):

http://www.dublin.oh.us/ddw800mhz/pdf/templates/WT-FIREtemplate.pdf
Both of those old ones are now found in Zone 35 of the template for Dublin and it is Zone 27 for Worthington.
The helicopter could just have a MARCS portable or a Delaware portable and using that instead of a mobile radio.

Zones is a Motorola term for banks and in some radios also channels, there is a Motorola trunking programming guide for wulfsburg radios on-line if you Google it
So that is what they are referencing, most likely in the helicopter radios.

Both CareFlight and UC AirCare have completed rebanding of their radios and we should
start hearing them using the new rebanded 800 MHz frequencies more.

Correction to the list: FM1 CH13 should read what FM1 CH12 lists. Not sure where the 153.770 listing goes after this change.
