Are the MED analog channels still in use?

I asked about this a few weeks ago but it never got any interest, I'll try again ....

Only very recently I have started to hear a single "burst" of noise on the analog MED-9 channel. Now, I'm also hearing it on MED-10 and sometimes even on MED-5. It is sporadic in nature, occurring once every 20mins or so. It almost sounds like someone is keying a mike every now and then, but after hearing it happen so many times in the past week or so I'm not sure it's man-made in nature. Is this some kind of "data packet" the ambulance is transmitting? I recall seeing something about this but it was regarding the P25 system.

NOTE: Also, I have not heard ANY comms on ANY of the MED channels for a while other than these bursts. Are these channels abandoned now, in favor of the P25 channels?

Most of the Fire Departments and all of the PD buses have P25 radios now to communicate with Medcom. You can hear them on Talk Groups 6001, 6002, and 6003.

I will have a full list of all department buses on the P25 system compiled for my next update to the NCPD P25 forum thread.

Excellent Phil, thanks much. So it seems the analog channels are going by the wayside.

No actually they send lead II ekg (ecg) on the analog channels. I believe they are only keeping Med 5 & Med 9. Otherwise they are on the above Talk Groups.

In Suffolk, most procedures are performed under "standing orders" ie no interaction with medical control. 12 lead ECGs are sent but with no voice and probably just as a data burst.

I still think by Federal Law they MUST keep the UHF stuff working for any large scale event that would bring in out of area Med units to help

I've heard notifications on MED 10 lately but much more rarely.

At this time any comms I hear on any of the analog MED channels are so sporadic that I have temporarily locked them out. Seems like everything is coming through the P25 system now.
