Default ALEA Reopens Quad Cities Dispatch

The dispatch center at the Quad-Cities Post was reopened July 3 with three communication officers, and others are expected to be hired. The center is manned 24 hours a day, five days a week. When they get the other dispatchers hired, the center will be open seven days a week.

Apparently the Jacksonville post's radio room is reopen as well. For the past month or so I have heard Birmingham post traffic with Jacksonville. Not sure if it's 24/7 yet. Seems like I still hear ALEA Central's terrible audio quality at times - maybe on the midnight shift.

Where is ALEA Central located? Haven't listened much lately, but I was hearing Central clearly in south St. Clair County.

North = Decatur
Central = Montgomery
South = Mobile

Thanks for the info.

I had previously assumed that Central would be Montgomery, but I was hearing Central respond to cars as well as I was hearing Jacksonville. Seems strange since, line of sight, the post in Montgomery is almost exactly twice as far from me as the post in Jacksonville (77mi. vs 38mi.) I'll have to start listening more regularly to see if I still hear Central.

The posts are connected to the repeater sites via wireline/T-1 and I believe ALEA Central has capability of talking on any of the sites in the State.
