Does anyone know whats with the frequency listed for Sidney Fire 158.79000 ? it's listed as FMN but all I get is intermittent data transmissions.
thanks for the reply,
I did hear Sidney fire on 158.7900 after a while, but that intermittent data transmission is the most annoying sound you have ever heard, there is no way I can monitor that, any idea of what that could be ?
155.085 is Belgrade, Oakland, Rome, Sidney got there own frequency not long ago.
Sidney is still dispatched by Waterville but their primary is now 158.7900. For years they shared 155.085 with Oakland, Belgrade and Rome but for some reason went and got their own primary. I don't know how they like it, seems to be some interference from Lewiston's P25 system on the same frequency.So is Sidney still Dispatched on 155.0850 by Waterville ?
Is 158.7900 the Fire/Ground aka Local or now Dispatch ?
I feel bad for the firefighters that have to rely on their radios and have one of the most annoying sounds I've ever heard come blasting out of the speaker.
you only hear a split second of the data noise intermittently, nothing like not having an RX tone, but just enough to annoy. I don't hear it on my new Pro-652 once I found the tone, but I do hear it on my 2 meter Yaesu and I have heard it on FD radios as well. Almost like the tone is not blocking it out quick enough.IF they are running CTCSS RX and TX they should tend to NOT hear the P25 chatter, only if the radios (Mobiles) are configued to drop-CTCSS when off-hook
