There used to be several filler frequencies for SO1 and the W WashCo Fire channel but it just is data now. Is there a new "filler frequency" for SO1? I am just using my Yaesu FT-60 in the car so no trunking is available.

Thanks

I'm assuming you mean the repeater channels for Ops 32 and SO1? Ever since the new system went into place, we dont have to use the repeaters. But that doesnt mean those frequencies arent in place though. The only for sure fire frequency is Fire1 (F1) 154.400, Banks Fire from time to time will use it.

As far as I know, the two west end sites that had filler freq (Buxton and Round Top) no longer have a 'simplex' SO 1. They now have a trunking repeater on the west end which eliminates the need for those 'filler' freq's.

It is unfortunate, as I too would use my ham radios to listen when I was out west.
