Ogle County Government

  • 7/11 FCC Modification for KDF47, adding 155.9025 B/M 11K for Road Maintenance

Ogle County 911

  • Steward and Flag Center Fire both cover parts of Ogle and Lee Counties.
  • 154.34 - Fire West - Forreston, Leaf River, Byron, Stillman Valley, Monroe Center, Lin-Scott-Rock (Lindenwood area/townships) (Simulcast sites connected via Microwave links)
  • 154.16 - Fire East - Rochelle, Creston, Hillcrest, Flag Center, Steward

From a contributor

  • 154.340 is simplex and almost everyone is using a 156.7 PL. Most radios are set to CSQ on RX only. Most agencies label this channel “Ogle” on their radios but any that I have helped with we label it “Ogle Fire.” Paging and regular traffic is all here, except for Rochelle, as described below.
  • 154.385 is the fire ground channel. Most here are using MABAS Red, but will also use this frequency with no PL tone.
  • 154.160 simplex with 156.7 PL is used by Rochelle and the surrounding departments already listed on RR.
  • (AFAIK) There are 4-5 tower sites being used for 154.340 and just one for 154.160. They seem to have the county broken in half East/West and page on the appropriate side of the county for that agency. I was told it’s simulcasted. Any MABAS incident is covered by all sites.
  • Side note: they will start a MABAS incident and if it only includes agencies within the division/county they will not page on IFERN, but instead keep it on 154.340 and use a single long tone group call tone.

Former Fire Frequencies

  • 154.31000 WPKI712 M 79.7 PL Fire/EMS: Orange
  • 154.38500 WPKI712 M 146.2 PL Fire/EMS: Yellow

Ogle County Sheriff's Office

Note: Heard "Adam 1" calling "Ogle County" on "Control 4" (Starcom 21 TG 1026, heard via site 102) to advise that he was enroute to Ogle County from Rosemont. Each commented on how clear the other's signals were. I'm guessing that "Control 4" is their identifier for Starcom 21 TG 1026, and that this was either the Sheriff coming back from some event or conference at a Rosemont hotel or possibly their transport van extriditing a wanted individual from Rosemont PD.
