Yes, this was on ALCO Northwest. That is their primary site, although I presume traffic could be carried on adjacent sites if units roam there.

Oakland Fire was doing coverage testing yesterday. I also noticed the following talkgroups active:

3409 - OPD?
3411 - OPD?
3428 - OPD?
3447 - OPD?
3448 - OPD?

2433 - OAK FD?
2435 - OAK FD?
I've seen the Oakland FD fleetmap and their Zone 1 channels only go up to 10. 11 and 12 are not fire related but 13 is the airport, so I don't know if 11 and 12 are correct.

Could Oakland Fire 11 and 12 be a patch for White 1 and Alco Tac 4 ?
Or maybe 2433 - OAK FD and 2435 - OAK FD might be for those.

11 is OKL P T4
12 is OKL OPD
13 is AIRPORT
14 is OKL CMD

I should have said previously that 11 and 12 weren't Oakland fire specific. Looks like 11 is a patch for VHF TAC 4 and 12 obviously some type of interop with PD?

No that's not the reason. Oakland hasn't been talking much if at all. They have not completely made the switch. Units have only been active for radio checks

Or maybe 11 is a patch to OPD Tac 4? I don't know what the "P" would be for if it's ALCO Tac 4. Their APX7000s should be dual-band VHF/700, right?

If that was the case, why not start at OPD Tac 1? And it wouldn't be a patch since they are on the same system anyway.

The current VHF Fire Tac 4 covers western Alameda County (where Oakland is) and i's a Tac 4 we know is related to fire operations, so that is a more likely choice. However, things that make sense to us, don't always means it makes sense to the administrators who get to decide what gets programmed in the radios and add a "P" for no reason, so who knows.

Since this thread is likely to become more active due to the Oakland transition, this is just a reminder that this thread is specifically related to updates to the system itself; for example new talk groups, new sites, new frequencies etc.

If you have a question about programming your radio, please use the EBRCS Question Thread located here:

Thank you.

According to a good source, Oakland PD is only testing their portables at the moment and during "down time" for the officers. Mobiles are to be worked on after portable testing is completed.

The wiki was updated with several unknown talkgroups that fall within the Oakland range. Please take a look and see if you can ID those that are unknown. A little bit later, I will post the names of the talkgroups I have according to a programming sheet I have (that's missing the talkgroups obviously) to see what we can match up.

The only references to SPT on Oakland's website I could find where related to the cities "Special Prosecution Team."

"The City's Special Prosecution Team (SPT) is a new unit of criminal lawyers in the City who
work with the Council, the District Attorney, the Police Department, Alcohol Beverage Action
Team (ABAT), Fire, Community & Economic Development Agency (CEDA) and Public Works
to prosecute chronic non-felony, misdemeanor crimes that severely impact the community's
quality of life."

Which is fire related I guess?

FPB is the Fire Prevention Bureau
