The article (and discussion) is here, regarding the new system.radiotweester said:
I gather that McMinnville Fire has decided to stick with their trunked system (McMinnville Police as well??). I continue to hear other fire agencies on the UHF conventional repeaters but not Mac units working calls within their own district.Baker845 said:Saw some info here on RR that Yamhill county geting ready to bring there new radio system on line. Does any one know what there new system is and have any freqs?
I did some research on that, and found this article:KE7JFF said:
Emphasis mine. I can confirm this, too. 460.275 and 460.4125 of the former Site 3 in Newberg had police traffic a few nights ago. Nothing big, mind you, but it was there. The other frequencies I'm not sure about only because I never had them programmed into my scanner.Latest News Update Posted on 2008-04-21 19:05:22
The YCOM MPT-1327 System has been deactivated effective 4-16-08. YCOM has switched to a conventional system using the formerly trunked frequencies.
I haven't had my scanner on at all today, but when I heard the traffic, it was at night. I'm going to reprogram it here in just a moment and leave it on for the next 24 hours. I'll see what I can come up with.Baker845 said:PMJ2kx is there still traffic on 460.275, 460.4125 tonight or thow out the day? also are there any other freqs you can hear?
None at this time, and that may be due to my proximity (or lack thereof) to the nearest transmitter. I just don't get the traffic I would if I was living closer to Newberg or elsewhere in the County.Baker845 said:PMJ2kx any other freqs this morning?
Having a chance Saturday to listen to various YCOM frequencies, I noticed activity on 460.1625 with a 14xx unit calling Station 82. I assume that was an OSP trooper trying to contact Newberg's dispatch center. They never responded but the unit said he was calling them on "Common". So, would this be a common frequency for all public safety agencies in the county such that they all have it programmed into their radios? And, I also heard a unit (I think it was a West Valley Fire duty officer) talking to another unit and mentioning that Lifeflight now has "Common" programmed into all of their radios and were using it for Saturday's incident. Hopefully, someone living in the county will be able to ascertain what the frequency designations are. I've heard in occasional scanning the apparent simulcast on several UHF frequencies for fire/ems responses. I assume that there are still "west", "central" and "east" designations in use.PMJ2kx said:Just an update for everyone:
460.275 is YCOM YCSO Primary / Dispatch (and I'm guessing an INPUT freq)
460.4125 is also YCOM YSCO Primary / Dispatch, but a lot quieter and more static on both ends
163.250 is still YCOM Fire/EMS dispatch with tone-out!
That's all I know / have so far.
