I have searched quite a bit and found nothing on FTO's for the Chattanooga/ Hamilton county area.
If someone could share this info it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

I was not aware they were using tone outs. One of the neat-but-seldom-used features of BCD436HP is the ability to read and store the tones. If you can tell me the tone out frequency (154.16 MHz?), I'll see what I can find.

Tone Out

I was not aware they were using tone outs. One of the neat-but-seldom-used features of BCD436HP is the ability to read and store the tones. If you can tell me the tone out frequency (154.16 MHz?), I'll see what I can find.
TRI-COMM has tones for every station and they are still on VHF. One of the last departments that still fully use VHF for all ops.

However, East Ridge, Sale Creek, Soddy Daisy, Red Bank are all toned out on their own VHF channel but then operate on a Fire ground channel on TACN p25 system.

The Rest of the departments in the county are all toned out on the EOC channel (154.1600)
I just didn't know if there was someone who already had these departments tones saved and could share.

Chattanooga Hamilton County Rescue Service is toned out on 155.295. They have all voice traffic on TACN, but are the only agency toned out on that frequency. It’s 3 long toned, not sure of what.

All three different tone?
? First usually an all call alert followed by direct alert tones. If you get a chance, someone log the tones. We used to use something similar for our tone outs.. First a single tone that opened all receivers. Sometimes they then added and announcement to standby for call. Then they would hit the two tone for individual agency, and agency specific message. Other times, just the three tones with a slight pause in between first and the pair.

No. 3 long tones. At one time the officers had an all call tone, the non officers had an all call tone, and the cave/vertical team had an all call tone. Now since a majority of their call volume is rehab truck support for the Fire/LE agencies, they just set off all 3 all call tones at one time on 155.295 to open all pagers. Then get assigned a fire ground channel on TACN to respond on.
