it seems that they have changed thier frequency all of sudden we have not ems or fire. I have a Uniden BCT15. I can not figure out how to get to scan the frequency i was given i have deleted the old system but i think that was a mistake. HELP please
Gladewater VFD used to be a simplex base channel. The repeater is new, so the interference is probably new, too. I have been hearing it up here in Longview as well. You will also notice that Montgomery Co. has licensed (WQKZ358) a new repeater on 158.790/150.805. That might be where some of the fire activity has gone.MCFD county 2 158.895 pl107.2 happens to be the input and squelch tone used for access to the Gladewater Fire Department repeater way up here in Gregg Co. I recently programmed GFD in my scanners and was curious how such a small town could have such an active Fire Department! I finnally determined that I am hearing MCFD2 traffic being repeated. I wonder how long GFD has been experiencing this interference?
If you are in Montgomery Co you should be hearing a fair amount of activity on 158.895mhz?
