Atlanta's Trunked Frequencies?

Atlanta's Trunked Frequencies?

Post by WPSto » Sun, 10 Dec 1995 04:00:00


frequencies that Atlanta has switched to, but I still receive public
safety communications on other trunked frequencies such as

        854.5625
        855.5375
        856.3875   .9875                
              857.3875    .7375
        858.3875   .4125
        859.3875

Are these frequencies still in use for Fulton County or are they from
another county?  In addition, Ive noticed Atl Fire still uses 154.1900
quite heavily.  Have only some of the public safety organizations switched
to the trunked system?  Im new to scanning and still learning what Im
listening to.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Atlanta Fire is still using their VHF frequencies. The dispatch channel
is also echoed on the trunk. Eventually the FD should convert completely.

    Six of the frequencies mentioned belong to the Fulton County trunk, which
is independent of the City of Atlanta. Two frequencies belong to Cobb County,
and one is a single channel business frequency.

  For reference, the trunks in the metro Atlanta area include -

As I am seeing, usually at first only the LEAD agency goes on the system
to work out the bugs.  After that more departments are added.  Budgets
also comes into play since the 800 MHZ stuff is more costly.
