According to news releases Presston VFD is no longer recognized by Stowe Township, and will not be dispatched for fire calls, and are not to respond.

Updates to the trunking systems page is in progress, and this will be a major update of the page.

There are a substantial amount of changes to the Allegheny County Fire And EMS page as well.

Allegheny County Dispatch - East Fire

Allegheny County East Fire - 470.3875 PL 123.0

There has been testing on this lately. Today radio service was talking about turning on the link. Tonight this seems to be linked with 472.5875 PL 136.5, and 472.8375 PL 156.7. These two have used 475.5875 for the input to the linked system.

From the sounds of the testing, this is primarily to serve the Penn Hills region.

Tonight this is linked, and now Penn Hills fire dispatches are going through the system. Penn Hills is still responding on VHF 154.400 PL 146.2.

During testing last night they were referring to Ops 2. There was some testing on 470.325 PL 146.3, and they switched back to Ch. 1 which was 470.3875.

The Skyview Radio Society repeater - 146.640 PL 131.8 - has undergone some changes. New antenna on a new tower, and the power amplifier has been repaired. The repeater has a nice signal here in the South Hills now. Nice job.

Allegheny County Dispatch - North Fire

Allegheny County Dispatch - North Fire

It looks like they are attempting to shorten dispatches. I have noticed that there are quite a few departments being dispatched with only one set of tones. They used to have two, and rarely three sets of tones for each department.

I've also noticed more QRS dispatches. QRS are dispatched on fire, and respond on EMS Ch. 1

The fire tones, and QRS companies will be on the next site update.
