Now that SDFD has bailed, and handed over everythign to the Navy, I don;'t know what system/frequencies this ship fire is being worked on. Not hearing anythign on the Navy DoD UHF system on the Federal Fire Commands or Tacs. Anyone know what this might be working on? I am basically line of sight of the ship, so if they are on simplex I should be able to receive the comms.
Yesterday Harbor PD fire boats were on HPD Dispatch 1 while working the fire. When the tugs came in, they were reportedly on VHF maritime 77. This morning it sounded like the helicopters were coordinating water drops on VHF maritime 16.
Operations, for whatever reason, seem to have moved from Federal Tac 2 (24026) to Federal Tac 1 (24025), at this time. Not sure why the switch. Just had confirmation of those channel designations on both talkgroups. I guess that makes 24027 Tac 3. (which I mentioned earlier as having traffic) Having listened a good part of the day, I heard almost nothing on Tac 3 except for the brief conversation this morning when I noted it in this thread.
They advised they are switching to a conventional simplex frequency...I don't even know where to begin searchignfor that...380-430 range search while looking at the ship isn't getting any hits other than 14C repeaters.
They called the new fire this morning a "secondary class A fire on deck B". I was never able to figure out what freq they were using, didn't have a chance to scan VHF, but would assume tney would use at minimum UHF for ship ointerior operations?
