800mhz Rebanding Question

Post by retiredFD07 » Thu Jan 23, 2020 9:55 pm

I don't know the specific details about rebanding, but my understanding is that the 861 ~ 868mhz frequencies formerly assigned to public safety have been / are being taken away from PS.

My question is this:
What happens to the National PS repeaters like FIREMARS on 868.9875?
Have they been completely eliminated, or replaced with another frequency?
If replaced, where do I find the new frequency assignments?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Looks like the name changed..

The California Fire and Medical Mutual Aid Radio Systems (CAFIRE formerly FIREMARS) consists of two repeated channels (one statewide, CAFIRE1, one usable in the 48 northern counties CAFIRE2) in the 800 MHz spectrum for fire and emergency medical services (EMS) communications. Fire Department UHF Mutual Aid (FDUMA) is the implementation of CAFIRE UHF in Los Angeles County. It was named to differentiate it from other CAFIRE channels without having to resort to using a numeric identifier after the channel name. Use of FDUMA is restricted to Los Angeles County.
