What do you mean by tone checks?
On each of the noted TGs, the techs did voice checks, and then went through a series of tones, what I would consider used for activating specific users. Similar to what they use today for activating Winside or Pierce EMTs.

Each day I see a number of radios being affiliated with specific TGs, like 50730 and 50740 shown in the attached capture. Any ideas on why these radios/TGs logon but then have no further activity?

Heard Norfolk PD doing active shooter training on TG 50711, being announced as OPS3. Also, believe TG 50730 is Streets or Public Works since user mentioned using new handhelds in "sprayers". Thinking these could be paint or weed sprayers.

I concur with what you are hearing. Kinda odd that 50711 is OPS 3, when a radio tester last week announced that TG as OPS 2. There was a City paint truck spraying street lines earlier this morning on 1st St. I'd imagine 50730 will pick up with more traffic soon. Starting to see quite a few City vehicles fitted with 800mhz "whips". A bit early to speculate, I'm willing to bet Norfolk Fire will be 50720.

Norfolk Fire was heard doing comm checks between Dispatch and Fire/Rescue 4 on TG 50720. Techs also tested what they called Fire Alert tones on 50720 and did voice checks on 50722. TG 50721 keyed up but nothing was heard.
