Feed Notes

Streaming the 'main' Fire Dispatch Channel for Cumberland County, Pennsylvania; along with the "Inter-County Fire Mutual Aid" frequency.

The Scanner is receiving its signal from a tower site located on top of a mountain near Shippensburg/Newburg (commonly referred to as "Three Square Hollow").      The specialized radio system at this tower site receives both the Cumberland County Fire -1 Lowband frequency of 46.060 MHz.; along with the 'Inter-County Mutual Aid' frequency of 154.280 MHz..      Both of these frequencies are then "Cross-Band / Simulcasted" out on the UHF frequency of 460.350 MHz .

This radio system/site then allows emergency responders to utilize this UHF for their pagers, etc.; especially with the lack of available Lowband pagers anymore.      One other "key benefit" is this UHF frequency provides greater coverage; along with the ability to receive calls while inside buildings, etc;; compared to the Lowband system.       This tower site/radio system is Licensed to (and operated/funded) as a "joint effort / cooperation" between the Vigilant Hose Company & Friendship Hose Company in Newville.

 This Streaming Feed is provided directly from the Vigilant Hose Company 52 in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania.

Additionally;  A '2nd' Audio Feed is also provided for Cumberland County, Pennsylvania FIREGROUND OPERATIONS (OPs) TALKGROUPS 2-8.     This separate radio system is also located and broadcasting from the above mentioned tower site.       A county 'OpenSky' radio is integrated through a repeater controller, which then 'simulcasts' the OP's Talk-Groups 2-8 out on Analog UHF on frequency 453.700 Mhz.       This allows personnel to program their scanners or pagers to have the 'OPs' Talkgroups; since OpenSky can not be received on any scanners, etc.
