The problem is not going to be spraying RF into a building it's the low power portables getting back to whatever command site you are running. Plus just because in one incident you can use the lobby, maybe next time it could be the lobby is on fire.

You totally missed the receiver diversity part. With 3 RX antennas on the vehicular repeater you can improve the portable talk back easily 6 dB or more. You can even park support vehicles on the other side of the structure and link additional receivers with IP.

Heck, with equipment available today you can have a transportable two or three site simulcast system that could be set up in minutes.

I never implied incident command would be inside the building lobby. That was proven to be deadly in 9/11.
