Default Paging FDs using AWIN

Can someone tell me how paging fire departments using Awin would work. I'm hearing that it does not work.

thanks

They would have to simulcast on a non trunk frequency (likely VHF) from what I understand. Otherwise, paging on a trunked system won't work from what I can find.

They can page FD's over AWIN by using a console to send out a digital alert to each of the radios individual unit id numbers for that particular fire dept.. This will accomplish the same result as sending out a group page using QCII over the analog system.

No pagers are available any more for 800, nor for P25. Those are the biggest issues.


As mentioned, one can page a group of radios.
