In the past couple of weeks I have been hearing Pyramid Lake Fire saying “switching to reservation freq” and today they are totally quiet on TM Disp, which is their normal frequency. Any ideas what this new ID is for the 800Mhz EDACS system?

Here's some recently expired licenses. Government agencies don't always promptly renew their licenses, so these may be active. It's a start.
KNNR 379
153.86
158.73

WBC 402
155.79
154.785

Do you (or anyone) know if the TM Dispatch VHF conventional frequency is still in use at all? I know that Command 1 and Command 2 as well as the brush assignment frequencies still patch.

The VHF frequency 158.7450 is used on brush assignments. But is also linked to EDACS on the IDs

Still no luck finding it. Has anyone found any info on this?
Here's some suggestions: search all FCC designated VHF fire frequencies, all Local Government (LG) frequencies, Possibly Washoe County FD and LG frequenices, (there might be a MEU that allows for Tribal use), BIA and other US Gov't frequencies, call the tribe and speak with someone in Public Relations, (not the yahoo that answers the phone). Be persistent, you'll come up with something.

If you're trying to find a new/unidentified talkgroup on a EDACS system, get yourself a rtl sdr dongle and monitor the EDACS site with Unitrunker, it will monitor/log all affiliations and voice grants 24/7. If it's a primary fire dispatch TG it should be pretty obvious.

Interesting, I only pick up CMD1, CMD2, peavine, slide, vp, and gerlach on my VHF radio while TM Disp 158.7450 remains quiet even when there is traffic on the 800mhz EDACS system.
