Thanks for responding regarding the WIKI page.
Please forgive me if my request read like a command. It was not my intent.
I wasn't aware members had the authority to edit or alter the database.
My only objective was to share the information.

I'm aware of the dated info on at least one of the MCFRS spreadsheets and at least one error which
I did not catch.
I submitted the document "Second File" to my recollection
when the Uniden receivers with the Fire Tone Out feature was released.

I located the chart while assigned to the Fire / Rescue EOC from 1987-'90.
I made a copy and stored it in a binder for reference. Later I created the Word document to store digitally.
I'm proud of this platform where information is shared for all interested.

Thanks Mike.

Tim

Tim a clarification is in order here.

When folks say 'the database' they generally are talking about our web-based database where much of our frequency and talkgroup information is stored. One can download this data when you buy a premium subscription, and use an applicable app, a few of which are freeware.

However you are correct, to a point, that the wiki is a 'database' of sorts. It sits atop a server running several different formats, including MySQL and Oracle (I don't know which one is being used here). However, this is a user maintained area, and there are things here, like fire tone outs, that are not stored in the databse. As mentioned before, this is a user maintained area, completely separate in its intent from the web based database, to which a host of DBAs do the maintenance and entering of user supplied data.

Many folks mix the two up, and it's easy to get them confused.

No worries, just a FYI Mike
