We know the fire chiefs talkgroup has been the site for Belmont FD. The last two days, Slater-Marietta and gownsville has been dispatched on them. Just heard a call on the old fire chiefs talkgroup again for slater and River falls. Sorry I don't remember the talk group number the scanner is 20 feet from me. Also heard Duncan Chapel getting tone tests on it today. Still a little ways out, but to me it looks like Greenville County fire is going to the 800 sytem. Sorry for my typing batteries are dying in the keyboard.

Oh well, looks like my days of listening to Greenville County Fire dispatch on my ham radio is "Over." I see a mobile scanner in my future.

Yes, 44041 is the primary Greenville County Fire dispatch talkgroup. I suspect there will be some tac/operations talkgroups put into effect soon as well. Ft. Inn FD and PD have also switched to Palmetto 800 this week. I would assume that most FDs will maintain their VHF or UHF "private" systems for a while at least, but it seems like primary dispatch will finally move to Palmetto 800.

Interesting, listed for quite a while today and all seemed to be uhf, but then Duncan Chapel asked for a tone test on UHF and dispatch responded on UHF or 800.
