Thanks for the reply, why would I receive them loud and clear for several months on the Palmerdale site and all of the sudden they go silent ? I get Trussville Fire on their VHF channel and Trussville PD on the Palmerdale site. This stuff can be confusing for a old man even though I have been listening for over 55 years and owned about every scanner ever made..its not a constant thing a unit must be close enough to "hit" the tower.
this is decided by the radio or site controller.
fyi trussville fire is not on the main simulcast site anymore. (need verified)
i only hear them on the hufman/ med center east site.
if you only care about birmingham fire they can be heard on huffman .
