    About PG&E's MPT1327 system....

    I am curious as to any possible rationales for PG&E choosing to deploy MPT1327 as their radio system instead of a Type II, LTR, or any other comparable analog trunking system. From what I understand, its one of the only MPT systems that exist in the U.S. and its a type that's mostly used outside...

    Unfamiliar In-band Signalling on Rocklin PD Dispatch

    Whenever I go through Rocklin I tune to their Dispatch frequency and along with MDC1200 I sometimes hear what sounds like a two-tone signal on keyup and sometimes on de-key. I have heard something similar to it on CHP's Valley Division-wide UHF frequencies but I am not sure what it is. I have...

I can only hear a single base station (which appears to be linked via wireline, showing 2175 Hz notch), but...

    San Bernardino County 01 - Barstow PD

    It appears that Barstow Police Department (Talk Group 17200, 17232 and 17296) has fallen off the face of the earth. They are not on 800 system any more and I have checked Phase I & II P25 both 700 and 900 systems with no luck. Barstow Fire Department is still using the 800 system though. Can...

    Los Angeles, CA - What we have is a failure to communicate

    The Los Angeles Regional Interoperable Communications System is supposed to link all of L.A. County's first responders. But its status is uncertain. Blame sloppiness, recriminations and politics. http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-newton-column-20110611,0,2121450.columnL
