    173.7875 P25 Phase 2 Control Channel

    What if it was Laughlin Ridge Seigler? Some intel is pointing it there vs Sanhedrin. Were you getting any control signal, or just not signal that matched expected Sanhedrin coverage? Wondering if they changed control channel... got Seigler and Laughlin mixed in my head, St Helena would...

    173.7875 P25 Phase 2 Control Channel

    Not surprised by you getting Site 78 in Live Oak, likely as soon as you moved out of the shadow of Sutter Buttes. I am thinking this site is causing slight desense for my home federal VHF reception in Red Bluff actually it is so strong. It was causing interference for aircraft over the Klamath...

    173MHz MO/MO3 for CAL FIRE

    CalFire is not going to CRIS up here anytime soon for daily operations. CalFire local net and command net density is far more reaching than CRIS sites. If anything, maybe for prevention units to access CRIS for encrypted capabilities. The only incident everyone's HT is on local net is a medical...

    173MHz MO/MO3 for CAL FIRE

    Message 7, paragraph 6. AVL relies a lot more on radio up in these parts vs cell coverage. Handshakes/beacons can certainly occur in AVL where the system can switch over to an alternate freq. It still breaks the theory of incoming mutual aid resources inheriting the "problem" though, but AVL is...

    173MHz MO/MO3 for CAL FIRE

    Another better fit to this would be Prevention units getting VRS. As I mentioned earlier with law enforcement needing more immediate PTT access than fire, this would fit that bill, as well as needing good coverage while away from vehicle, and would not be subject as much to mutual aid as the...

    173MHz MO/MO3 for CAL FIRE

    You are correct, that is how a VRS typically/technically works. Many of us know that, and we all agree VRS/MO3 solutions are an awesome tool, and are vital in some situations and departments. My issue is operationally how does this work for CalFire? Don't focus on the technical bits, you missed...

    173MHz MO/MO3 for CAL FIRE

    None other than a good round number I think to throw at the paperwork that would more than cover day-to-day norms? Considering Lassen county just had over 6000 personnel in the area for the Dixie Fire last month, I don't think the FCC will write anyone up for having more than 500 mobile units in...

    173MHz MO/MO3 for CAL FIRE

    Maybe, but highly doubtful. BC's have dual head radios with the second head at the tailgate. Their tailgate becomes the mobile office. BC's don't roam away from their vehicle much if they are in the role of IC or OSC. If they are DIVS and away from their vehicle they will be in a geographic span...

    173MHz MO/MO3 for CAL FIRE

    So how I approach these unknowns is first to try and determine what problem they are trying to solve within their existing operational parameters. Starting off with a wild guess of preparation for CRIS would get us lost on many tangents. Instead I take the clues we have available, the list of...

    Will FAA change Squaw Valley VORDME id ?

    If the free market pressured Squaw Valley to change their name, then so be it. But if the VORDME is on the peak of Squaw Peak, and the peak name hasn't changed, I wouldn't be worried in such a change. And even if the peak changes their name in years to come, it'll probably take another year or...

    California Radio Interoperable System (CRIS)

    I agree, not sure why the DB doesn’t have this. I know it takes a submission, but I don’t have my notes with me from that one.

    Caldor Fire - 345 homes destroyed so far

    And surprise surprise, she was wrong. She does all of us a disservice with all the misinformation and uneducated opinion. The power company's weather station at the current head of the piece of fire that made it into the basin, never made it past 9mph gust during that time. 10 minute resolution...

    Caldor Fire - 345 homes destroyed so far

    Not aware of just an Ops stream. Incidentally, the proper setup for a major fire like this is having A/G Command (not tactical) as priority 1, Air Briefing as priority 2 (unless it's shared with rotor or other operational traffic), then regular Command Net as priority 3. This gives the best...

    Modoc County 155.6175

    I should rephrase my previous statement, I believe they are expanding upon their existing "system" and not replacing. I was trying to find the report I ran into a while ago, and found some preliminary consultant reports of needing six additional frequencies licensed to the county. I can't...

    Modoc County 155.6175

    They're spinning up a new radio system so you hearing mile marker radio checks sounds like testing. Good find.
