                                                                             August 25th 2021

           Sometime in October (or November) 2021 Northport Fire Dept. will be switching from low band  (46.42) to a UHF repeater system. When the switch over happens the repeater system will be heard here....however due a new radio receiver for the broadcast on Broadcastify, the Centerport UHf reapeater system will no longer be heard here.

  * There's a  60 - 90 second delay from actual transmission until it's heard here * 

 June 2020: The Northport Chiefs'; Paramedic; both ambulances; 3 pumpers - 2-9-3, 2-9-6, 2-9-8 & ladder 2-9-7 have a mobile data terminal and can use it to indicate they're responding, on scene or returing instead of using the radio. So at times you might not hear them but will hear the dispatcher acknowledge them on the radio.
