I know this is VHF but I have just found out that there are three new MNC fireground channels which are MNC4, MNC5 and MNC6. Don’t know if anyone knows how to find what frequencies they could be.

All the pre-formed comms plans including these new ones are in the "Metropolitan All Hazards Communications Folder" on the volunteer portal if you have access to that. Check under Doctrine Resources / Communications I think.

If you don't have portal access, I don't think it's public information, sorry.

I noticed a few uhf channels for albany 6330 i thought these were District offices and cross banded onto the vhf system at the repeater site but i could be wrong .
off topic searching the acma database and looking through the vhf waren frequencys i noticed all vhf warren repeaters use a negative 4.6 offset

Can you elaborate on new UHF channels?

Yes that's correct about offset, but respectfully I would not like the CTCSS tone publicly known.

As of 0800 on Wednesday 10th October DFES will be using ESC 220 and ESD 221 instead of ESA and ESB

Portable repeater pairs

458.0375 RX / 468.0375 TX
458.0875 RX / 468.0875 TX

Very close to the existing ESA/ESB channels so maybe frequency re-use..?
No idea maybe these??

Identifying ES-C and ES-D.

The old channels were actually owned by St John Ambulance so I've taken a list of WA-wide ACMA simplex allocations (that we don't already know about) in the mid UHF emergency services band and posted them below. It's likely ES-C and D are in this list. Plug these in and let us know what you hear:
