Ambulance Frequencies

Frequency    Location                  Scangroup
----------------------------------------------------------
141.3500     Maungakawa (Ngatea)       Coromandel

141.4625     Maungakawa (Ngatea)       Hamilton / Taupo
141.4000     Te Uku (Raglan)           Hamilton / Taupo
141.3625     Ranginui (Te Kuiti)       Hamilton / Taupo
141.3375     Whakamaru (Mangakino)     Hamilton / Taupo
141.3750     Mt Hikurangi (Taumaranui) Hamilton / Taupo
141.3250     Pihanga (Turangi)         Hamilton / Taupo

141.4500     Sanitorium Hill (Cambridge) Tauranga / Rotorua / Whakatane

The Hamilton and Taupo areas are partially cross-linked to the Tauranga/Rotorua/Whakatane group.
You will note that Sanatorium hill is in Cambridge and would seem to be the primary repeater for Hamilton City but is in the Tauranga group... contrary to all logic. Thus you will hear all voice traffic on this frequency but not selcall for the Hamilton / Taupo group.
The Coromandel is partially linked with the Northland channel.

Fire Callsigns

Below are the stations, appliances and capcodes in brackets of the units in the Waikato area.  Please note that 111emergency has more listed on some stations, however I haven't seen these turned out via pager,
