You can reference the Macomb County Database page: Everything listed on the page will be conventional.

That link is correct, however a lot of the public safety departments have moved operations over to the MPSCS.

You will need to look at the two pages and see which departments haven't switched over. I haven't made a close comparison because I just listen to the digital stuff. Hope this helps.

Sterling Heights is 460.675 and is ported to MPCS. There are quite a few departments in Oakland County still VHF conventional 155.00 range: Southfield fire; Beverly Hills and others. Maybe they are waiting to go 700 mh?

The Open Sky change over isn't complete and probably won't be until the first of 2009.

Sterling Hgts FD is 460.625, and only still using UHF for station alerting. Once an alternative way to alert is implimented, it'll be 800 MHz only.
Also, many volunteer depts w/pagers still use 154.130, tho most switch to 800 MHz after being toned out.
