4522 is some sort of Wexford County Fire group. Never heard them use a name, but I hear unit->dispatch conversations after an apparent page, and some incident communications. Heard on the Manton site.

5434 -Wexford County ems dispatches: North Flight Station 1, ems station 2, ems station 1, Mesick Rescue,North Flight City Fire.... . I also heard 2 dispatches for Cadillac Fire for a fire call. Also some ambulance coverage coordiantion from Missaukee County EMS. (i.e. its not a pure paging channel, I assume)
It seems if the page is on 5434 is for Wexford County Mesick Rescue, it also goes out on 4380... I have only heard Mesick Rescue pages on 4380.
It seems if the page is on 5434 is for Wexford County EMS Station 2, it also goes out on 4379 Manton.

5316 on lake city/falmouth site - some sort of wexford fire....

EMS Station 2 is the Ambulance Barn in Manton, which explains why it's patched on that TG. Mesick Rescue is located in Mesick (pretty obvious), which explains the TG patch there too. EMS Station 1, City Fire, 900 Rescue, and 400 Rescue are all in Cadillac or the surrounding Area. Buckley Rescue is closer to the Mesick MPSCS site, so they're probably patched out on a separate TG as well. I haven't monitored anything on this system since VHF went off the air right after Christmas last year, it's nice to hear about some stuff from this county again!

Whats really crazy is I am like 35 miles from the tower. I got a new higher gain omni antenna and now I can pick it up. I also got a yagi; when I had it on a 2 foot cable it seemed to pick up a lot of stuff, but now its on the roof and I think I have too much cable and its not working as well as the omni. Probably need an LNA.

Thanks for the info!

Well it appears the simulcast system in Kent is now Online and overloading the RTL.

RF overload, or just not able to handle the simulcast distortion?
RF overload because the SDR cant handle that much strength from only *two* channels. lol.

I can always adjust it for the better.

Hearing tow trucks being dispatched on TG8089, listed as DPD Command 5. Sounds like city tow trucks picking up DPD impounds.

Is there a dispatching Talkgroup for all fire/EMS Agencies, like a Central Dispatch Channel, or is everything done through individual TGs? I’ve never been able to figure out how their MPSCS system is set up, and it sounds highly complicated for such a basic county with 8-9 calls a day.

You know more about it than I do! I kind of *assume* that maybe they do this for their pagers.....?

The pattern seems to be the page goes out on a TG, units respond to central dispatch on another TG.
5434 (Which got labeled as first responders) appears to possibly be the main paging TG. For example, there was a car fire a few weeks ago, and I heard the page on 5434, and 4387 for station 600. Then they paged out station 800 on 4389, and repeated in on 5434. On that page, they told station 800 to check in and switch to "83 Fire Ops 2" All the station 800 units checked in on 5436 and it seemed like they stayed on 5436.

I will have to listen more to get more pieces of the puzzle.
