Does anyone have an updated list of Fire/EMS and SO frequencies? Not sure what's up to date and what is old.

I'm not particularly familiar with Dawson County radio operations myself.

However, I missed this a few months ago, but Dawson County has finally posted the RFP to hire a consultant to advise them on procuring a P25 system. See https://vrapp.vendorregistry.com/Bi...79_21 RADIO SYSTEM UPGRADE CONSULTANT.doc.pdf

That's the first significant step toward building out a P25 system. Who knows what they will ultimately do, but the RFP notes the possibility of building a county-owned site that connects to the Cobb core (like Forsyth, Cherokee and Bartow have done).

What makes you believe the frequencies listed in the RR database aren't accurate?? Do you even monitor Dawson County? I am listening now, and they are very active.

Just wondering.................

Just wondering out of curiosity. May be traveling through the area and see that "at least for FD" that Dispatch is the only channel recognized.

Recognized by who/what? I can hear them from N. Gwinnett county on my 15X.
The NEW PD dispatch is the one to monitor. The fire/ems frequency, 152.5275, is also active. The FD dispatch (simulcast) is rarely heard.

Understand. I just don't monitor them much. SO can be heard, as well as, FD/EMS. They like to sit on State route 400/19 for speeders.
Don't know about the tac freqs.

Understand.
SO and FD can be heard on their narrow band frequencies. No idea what Suppression is, ARFF, etc.. None of that is listed in the RR database.
Just heard SO on their new dispatch, 155.9325 as I type.
