I was programming the Ole BCT15x with the Summer Zone I have and noticed some traffic coming over the Ocean Beach FD repeater split but not with the normal 88.5 PL tone. All I heard was MDC being transmitted and then the repeater hang time. The traffic had the exact same repeater split as the main channel just different PLs. I'm assuming this is a backup repeater, as I couldn't find any information regarding that posted on the database.... Anyone have any information? Same exact repeater split just different PLs

Quite a few, in fact...

Operations - 460.7500, 88.5
Operations 2 - 460.6000, 82.5
Fireground A - 465.5125, D432
Fireground B - 465.5375, D432
Islandwide - 476.4750, 77.0
Islandwide 6 - 453.7000, 94.8

OP: I'm confused by your use of the word "split." Are you trying to listen in on the repeater input frequencies?

Islandwide-2 476.475 is a repeated freq used by all depts on fire island to talk to Firecom

OBFD Primary and Islandwide 6 are both repeated freqs. All others are simplex. Most of the action is on Islandwide 2.

Did you hear an MDC squelch of the morse code identifier?

The audio I heard is coming over OPERATIONS 1 with a PL of 77.0. Not 88.5

I just heard MDC1200 over OBFD1 460.7500 on a 77.0 pl tone then hear the repeater hang for 3 seconds then click off
