Radio Systems

  • UHF Simulcast Network

This system has five simulcast channels as well as several one site only repeated channels for special events and emergencies. Additionally, the City of McMinnville has their own Simulcast system which has three channels.

  • VHF and Low Band Paging System

This system is used for Fire and EMS personnel's pagers. There is one VHF frequency and one Low Band frequency. The two are multicast together so that pages can be heard on both at the same time.
