Can anyone tell me the EMS channel used off of Telegraph Pass? All 10 of the original EMS channels are licensed which is the usual procedure but normally there are only one or two repeaters on a site. The database doesn't indicate a specific one.

Many thanks, Bruce...

Do you mean the EMSCOM UHF medical channels, between 462.950-463.175 and 467.950-468.175? (Arizona also had 5 additional channels in the 453 MHz range, known as Med 11-Med 15.)
Arizona DPS no longer supports that system, as most paramedics in Arizona follow an SOP that rarely requires them to contact a hospital. And if they do, they typically use a cell phone, or an encrypted TG on a trunked radio system if one is available.

However, Med 3, 6, 7 and 8 were all available off of Telegraph Pass in the past.

In the past it was mentioned that the State EMSCOM UHF infrastructure was decommissioned when the FCC forced narrowbanding. Rather than narrowband 70+ repeaters that were not heavily used, they were decommissioned. Funds likely went toward the AzWins 700mhz statewide system instead. There may be few UHF MED repeaters that were narrowbanded and are still in use, but not as many as in the past.
