Looks like Lower Valley FPD in Fruita has licensed a new narrowband pair at the same location as their existing tactical pair 153.77 / 154.37. I can no longer locate this existing freq in the FCC database, so it's possible the old license expired and they couldn't get the existing pair re-licensed.

This would seem to validate Bruce's earlier assertion that many of the county FD's will maintain a VHF capability well after the DTR transition begins.

I am almost positive with what I have heard within the fire community that this is replacing the current LVFPD tac frequency I assume due to the 2013 narrowband mandate. I know they are getting a new one but I am not sure why. My best guess is the new narrowband mandate and eventually all fire dept tacticals and Fire A/B will be switched to narrowband like this frequency. (Fire C is already there.)

DTRS transition for fire with the exception of GJ Fire will be out farther than law. Hopefully the county will get a grant to then transition to DTRS sooner than departments having to scrounge the money up.

Lower valley let their licensees lap so they had to narrow band every thing after the old freq was assigned to a Utah fire department. so they had to reprogram all radios and repeaters overnight to narrow-band.
