159.090 still has a CW ID'er on it, so it's still being used. It ID'ed about half an hour ago.

it appears they switched to a DCS of 115 and are not using the CTCSS (PL) of 127.3 any longer. Those of you with scanners with Tone Search should turn that feature on so we can find out for sure.

I'm also curious about the old Parks VHF on 159.390, which, last I heard, was a chit-chat channel for MCSO Lake Patrol 500 deputies as well as Parks and Trails 600 deputies, as it did not have a dispatcher. Is it still in use?

I have caught them using a DCS of 115 on Search 8. If you're still using a PL of 127.3, change it. I still haven't heard any confirmed transmissions on Parks VHF, however. I have heard some 'open mike' like transmissions with CSQ.

Search 8 has a DCS of 115. I have not heard Parks VHF (159.390) used this year. Has it been decomissioned, or has it gone simplex only?

I did catch some simplex activity, with CSQ, late one evening. I don't know who the users were, and I couldn't really make out what the conversation was in regards to.
