I asked the Fire Chief and he stated that it is permanent. They had reassigned equipment and supervisors who were paramedics to accomplish this with no cost to the taxpayer.

Seems that they have stoped the 7AM special information broadcast listing all the units out of service. The list must be too big to put over the radio

Well it looks like there will be a new County Fire Chief and a new County Police Chief. Will be interesting to see who Schuh chooses.

2. Do current FD channels seem scratchy to everybody? I always have full signal strength anywhere in the county, but the scratchiness is omnipresent and annoying. Is this caused by the multicast nature of the system?
They have for me lately.....

Great find Troymail!


The scratchiness/low volume might be because they have been in the RCC for the past week or so. Whenever they are in the RCC, the dispatchers always have a lower volume and alot of background noise (lots of people in a small room!).

Noticed during the past hour or so a lot of static and "odd sounds" on 154.01 mhz.

Maybe ARINC will win this one. They could still spec Motorola equipment, like they do with projects around the world.

ARINC is not licensed by Motorola to sell APB equipment to Public Safety in the US.

Ah, good to know. That sort of explains things.

Fire Alarm has been on condition yellow this morning. It appears they are still at the RCC, anyone know why they have been there for the past couple weeks?

At about 920, Fire Alarm went on Condition Red. Noticed a lot of static again on 154.01. Not sure if the condition red is related to that?

1054: Fire Alarm is off of Condition Red "But due to radio maintenance, all stations must monitor Alpha on Portable Radios."

Probably all related to the reason for being at the alternate site

Paging (154.01) is barely detectable in Linthicum. I'm guessing the only tower transmitting is Millersville.

Getting full bars here in Pasadena. Just static and long key-ups with no audio.

I stumbled across this YouTube video about the recently upgraded AV system at AACo EOC:

Anybody know how the status messaging system works? Is there a separate data channel, or are the messages embedded in the current voice channel or control channel? Some systems seem to have a data tg/channel, but I don't see one for AACo.
