So anyone know what's going on with the Willow Hill fire grid repeater? The tone changed at some point in the past year or two to 151.4

I know that site used to get a lot of interference from a repeater in NB, so that makes sense to change the tone. But now all I ever hear on it is Brooklyn FD and they refer to it as 'Brooklyn private'.

Anyone know if it's still in the IMRS lineup? Or maybe the original tone (82.5 I think?) is still active?

Thanks

I think the change took place late last year, just after Brooklyn open their Station #2 in Garlands Crossing ( on Hwy 14 between Hwy 1 and Hwy 101.).
I pick up at home and around the bay fairly clear. I suspect it is part of the re-vamping of the old VHF repeater system. The new tone would as hfxChris mentioned end the skip from Upper Kingsclear NB.
