Wichita Falls 800 MHz Conventional Frequencies

Wichita Falls Public Works NEXEDGE

  • In December 2012 the city of Wichita Falls moved the various public works departments from their four VHF simplex channels and one UHF repeater to six Kenwood NEXEDGE conventional repeaters at multiple sites. Here is the City Council Resolution to purchase the equipment.
  • Four of the repeater pairs (460.2750, 460.3500, 460.600 and 460.6250) were previously used by the police and fire departments before the 800 MHz EDACS trunked system was installed in 2005, and two new repeater pairs (453.1625 and 453.9000) were obtained.
  • Simplex operation on the repeater outputs has been heard but it is not known if the old PD simplex channels (460.225, 460.325 and 460.475) are used.
  • For information on how to receive NEXEDGE see the NEXEDGE wiki article.

Fire Tone Outs

Wichita County Fire Departments

The four county fire repeaters (151.3925, 151.4975, 155.5650, 155.8200) are linked together for countywide coverage. All departments outside of Wichita Falls, except Burkburnett, are dispatched on the repeater simulcast system, and will move to their onscene simplex frequency or statewide interop channels within 20 minutes of initial dispatch, or when another department is dispatched for a response in their area. Department pagers are programmed with the nearest repeater to their territory. Friberg-Cooper and Punkin Center do not have their own response area per The State Of Texas and S.F.F.M.A. Those departments have been setup for mutual aid responses only and can be activated when requested. Those department tones are the same as the dispatching agency.
