This makes sense. In Tulsa, for example, there are (2) --primary-- towers....one located in South Tulsa,
and the other located downtown (or North Tulsa)
If you lived in far South Tulsa, you would probably experience a variance
in the strength of certain trunked freqs. (The same would invariably happen in far North Tulsa)
As far as hearing Tulsa in OKC....I would think that hearing TPD would be highly unlikely.
You might hear them on ---Regional Mutual Aid RMA---- channels... but even then,
I am not too sure you could hear them then, (on tactical) for multiple reasons.
Speaking of RMA...(and on another issue) last night (2AM-3AM) there was some type
of search in Rogers CO involving Police 2. (Tulsa's helicopter)
It involved Rogers Co Sheriff's Dept... I listen to these cool events as a hobby, and have for many years.
While the ordeal was happening, dispatch tried to patch Police 2 (who was on a RMA chan)
and it failed; the Rogers units could not key-up.... They attempted the patch multiple times.....
I wondered why Rogers officers could not simply switch over to the RMA that P2 was on.
Does Rogers CO's tactical have some type of encryption, or other variable, that
would not allow the fleet to switch over to an RMA?
