According to this article the city of McMinnville, (Police and Fire), want to go UHF Simulcast, just like the county- something that should have been done ages ago. I hope everything goes well for them.

There have been a couple calls within the months that would require some county sheriff assistance in the city of McMinnville. When Mac was still using their MPT system, the county units would come onto their net just fine, but now they all say they can't find Mac's channel in their radios. However last night, a county unit accidentally got on to it somehow... So, I hope when they actually do go simulcast, that everyone gets the training that's needed.

So which channels are McMinnville Fire and PD working off of?

And why am I hearing law on Fire Ops 2 (460.275)?
Mac Fire is on County "FIRE" (453.8375) with everyone else, and Mac PD are on "MacPD Conventional"(453.175).

LAW is being worked on right now, and OPS1, 2 and 3 are tactical channels for everybody in the county. OPS2 being the typical secondary law channel.

...And now the MPT Control Channel 453.5375 (High Heaven) is offline. The upgrade process has begun.

McMinnville tower control channel is offline as well. This means Linfield Security and McMinnville High School are probably using some other methods for now..

Linfield Security is operating on 460.6375 110.9
Correction on that PL, its 107.2 on 460.6375.

McMinnville School District was testing on 453.2325 and 453.5375 both with PL 107.2 from High Heaven.

So not only are they changing freq assignments, but they are also reprogramming tx freqs locations.
