Wichita Falls Public Works NEXEDGE
- The city of Wichita Falls has moved all non-public safety departments, except Transit, from their four VHF simplex channels and one UHF repeater to six NEXEDGE (NXDN 9600 bps) conventional repeater frequencies at multiple sites. Here is the City Council Resolution to purchase the equipment. Four of the frequency pairs were used by the police and fire departments before they moved to the 800 MHz EDACS trunked system.
- Here is the channel lineup as heard so far:
- As of 12/21/2012 the VHF channels (153.590, 154.025, 155.760 and 158.760) appear to be silent. The licenses have been modified for narrow FM and digital emissions so it is not known if these frequencies will be used for anything in the future.
The following frequencies are not listed in the database. If you can confirm or identify any of them, please submit the information and remove them from this list.

Wichita County Fire Departments
The three county fire repeaters (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.
