Heard a call for station 45 for a tree down blocking Phalanx Mills Herner Rd while service searching the marine band on my 996XT. Also heard a squad call for station 30 and another squad call on Rt. 534. Dispatcher only IDs as 911. No license seems to match up. Any ideas?

Sounds like Trumbull Co. to me. 534 runs north/south. St-45 would be Southington. St-30 would be Howland. ...and the County dispatch is TC911.

It looks like Weathersfield is licensed for 156.225.

I saw the Weathersfield FD license but they are some distance from Phalanx Mills Herner and I'm not sure where the line is between Portage/Trumbull there. I'm in PA and only go through there if heading to the legendary Nelson Ledges Quarry Park.

Looks like we need to watch that freq and see if it has been taken over by the county or what. There were definitely multiple stations being toned out, so probably not just Weathersfield anymore.

Most fire departments are on MARCS. The center still dispatches every department on 156.225 which was Weathersfield when they were on VHF.

Is 154.250 still in use for fire dispatch? If you have any other updates for the area please let me know.

Yes, that is the main dispatch frequency. Lordstown in Trumbull has their own fire repeater and also tones on it. It is listed in the database here. They do not use MARCS.

Seeing data bursts on freq too and at first thought it was alpha paging perhaps. Turns out it's Nexedge48 with a RAN of 45, TG1, and just a couple radios IDs, 804&505. Couple of short voice calls were too quick to make out, maybe only two ot three words.

Eh, nevermind. Turns out that is near me, North Fayette DPW. Also hear PA Turnpike on that channel. Awful dang busy for being a marine channel.
