The best thing to do is listen for addresses and also try and get a general idea on what they are talking about.

Hunting down users is a challenge but worth it when you ID them.

I think fleet connect lets you have radios only on one site. They charge extra for multi site roaming.

Not surprising since this thread is not about Fleetnet.

LOL thats the problem with names that sound the same.

Anyway I have confirmed that fleet connect can have users that are on one site only or on a group of towers or on the full system. Each level of coverage has a different billing structure.

Depends what you want. If your a farmer and operate in essex/chatham-kent then you have no need to have sarnia, london and so on and on sites in your radio possibly chewing up the frequencies if you ventured down that way. The radio will just say site not allowed on the screen and give a mean sounding beep.

The system requires your ESN of the radio, model number and they assign a radio ID and talkgroup. If you try and clone your radio ID to another radio it simply wont work due to the ESN lock. Security feature to prevent people from hijacking the repeaters
