Fire Station Two-Tone's

Post by scanfaned »

Would anyone by chance have the two-tone paging codes for the Riverside County Fire Stations? I am mostly interested in the Menifee stations. From an old list that I found, I tried to get 1185.2/1285.8 to work for Station 76 in a Unication G5 that I am trying to program. So far, I have not been able to get it to work. At this point, I am not sure if it is a programming issue on my end, or perhaps I have the incorrect tones.

Anyone know of current stations tones?

Thanks!

Thank you! Would you know if Station 68 is still 1433.4/1395.0?

Thanks again!

101 is 524.6 389.0
The rest are correct.

The only one that I know of that has changed since the list was made was station 92. There might be one more but I am not sure. Also, with new stations and closed stations, the list will be different obviously.

Kingscup,

Thank you for all the confirmations.

In regard to Station 76 in Menifee, can you advise if there are separate tones for the engine and the truck? Does 1185.2/1285.8 cover both of them?

Thanks again!

They only have one tone for the station.

On another note, yesterday morning, I heard several tones I have never heard before on the Broadcastify feed. Since I was not next to the scanner, I don't know if it came from RRU 1 or some other frequency that does not normally transmit tones. The feed does not have any freqs that produce tones other than RRU 1 that I know of. They were the old longer version and did not sound like any of the current tones. There was no announcement before or after the tones. I am not expecting an answer but thought I would throw it out there.

Hmmm. That is interesting. Wonder if we should be looking for some changes...

I believe I figured out the new tones. I heard 2 of the 4 tones from a few days ago being used to dispatch Los Pinos camp. It is a new CCC hand crew camp based in El Cariso. I had heard rumors a few years ago about reopening the camp under a state or county entity. Looks like they have finally done it. They mostly do fuel reduction clearance but can respond to fires. The longer I am retired, the less info I have.
