Can someone translate a couple of lines from above and maybe answer a question...

First, I don't understand how these are frequencies or how to read or translate these to monitor them - please explain...

1027 EVENT 18 - Downtown Ops
1028 EVENT 19 - Event Command
13312 ??? - EMS Ops
22008 CGAS Detroit Ops

Watercraft:
CG 25437
CG 25572
CG 29347
CG 29348
CG 32141
CG 32145 (Port Clinton)
CG 32146
CG AUX 41306 (Port Sheldon)
CG AUX 44359 (Port Sheldon)
CG 47225
CG 47304
CG 49412 (Muskegon)

USCGC Biscayne Bay (w/CG 184465)
USCGC Bristol Bay (w/CG 182530)

...and lastly, my question is - of the frequencies that I can read, is the original person posting this topic suggesting that these were all the frequencies that he found traffic on for last year's event ?

ok thank you.. I am very new to digital trunking so I have a lot to learn. I just got a BCD436HP and I barely know how to use the zip code thing to scan let alone add certain talk groups :) ...guess I need to spend some time with the owner's manual.

- thanks again - your clarification males a lot more sense now
