Chris Ranck submitted information about the frequencies for the new CFD digital radio system.

The frequencies are UHF digital, so a digital scanner is needed. (I have a Radio Shack PRO 106, which needs to be set as a P25 digital talkgroup). 

The frequencies are:

  • citywide fire 476.6875
  • CFD EMS main 477.5125
  • CFD fire main 477.78750
  • Chicago OEMC 477.9875
  • CFD fire Englewood 478. 2125
  • CFD EMS Englewood 478.4625

I read that one bank of the scanner should only have digital frequencies.

There are several analog UHF frequencies.

  • CFD admin 462.9750
  • CFD fireground 458.0250
  • CFD EMS command 458. 1750
  • CFD command 458.1250
  • CFD fire tac 470.1625
  • CFD ops 8 476.2875
  • CFD ops 9 479.2875
  • CFD ops 10 477.6625
  • CFD ops 11 480.6625
  • CFD utilities 458.0750
  • CFD events 1 478.5000
  • CFD events 2 481. 5000
  • CFD CTA fire 460.0625

There are some other general city frequencies which can be found on either wwwradioreference.com or wwwchichagocarma.com. I hope this helps.
