My local Fire Department have always used 154.145 as an output repeater channel and 151.370 as an input repeater channel, To my knowledge this is the ONLY channel they use for dispatch and operations, it's the only channel I know of that they use...However, Strangly and oddly enough, Last night I picked them up on a new frequency while searching, A house fire was toned out, it came across output frequency of 148.595 (which I didn't think was even the same band range), Is it that this could be to frequency that sets off their pagers? Or maybe they've aquired a new channel? Strange thing though, When the tone came over, I heard it loud and clear on the above new channel, But my PSR 500 here at home records all of the traffic on that channel and it never recorded the tone, It picked up when they acknowledged that they were en route, it didn't even pick up the voice part on the 154.145 but it did on the 148.595 one...can anyone explain this new phenomenon on why this happened? Could it have been this is their private channel that is not realeased to the public, I know they have one along with other FD's and PD's in the county..Can anyone shed any light on this, Does anyone know what could or what might have been or happened? 'preciate any help anyone can give or advice also..
