Here in Central Ks. We have "Eagle Med" out of Hays. They have VHF, UHF and 800 capabilities to talk to units on scene in Russell County and its surrounding counties. I do hear them on "MED" frequencies. Med 1, Med 2, etc. How they are dispatched, I do not know for sure. I spoke to an Eagle Med chopper pilot and he had a text pager on his side. He stated to me that when they are dispatched, his pager is sent a text message and then he calls his home base in Hays to find out where they need to go and the reason etc.bnbequipment said:Lifeteam out of Hutchinson uses the 800mhz repeater alot when conversing with hospitals in Wichita, they mostly use Reno Co. 800 EMS ch with a tone patch. When they are landing on scene they have the ability to use what ever the ground crew has, here they will talk on either our VHF EMS or Fire Frequency, but we have just given them a complete list of frequencies for the county.
Ellsworth county who operates on 800 for ems and police can talk to them there, or they can use VHF.
I believe they have the ability to talk on VHF high band, UHF, and 800, I am not sure about lowband.
