What is NW Mutual Aid?Thanks for the Agency Number.
I currently am in the process of acquiring it once they go live. The GP County and MD are going to be using that vs . NW Mutual Aid as they deal w/ forestry more outside the city limits.
GPFD have NW Mutual Aid as their 15 spot.
Had someone key the channel from the County and that's what popped up on Debolt Dispatch. We tried keying other ones but they didn't pop up, so we figured you'd have to be in that geographical zone to have it work, even though Debolt and Grovedale are neighbours to GP/County.How did you come to decide that talkgroup is Debolt Dispatch? Audio?
Greenview has EMS Mutual Aid 11-14 which is used in multiple zones. And I know their radio is programmed exactly the same as County with Alpha Bravo Charlie and a few other municipalities TGIDs.If they had the GP Fire talk group they should. Could Greenview have some Mutual Aid channels in a second zone?
The answer is a definite maybe, and it depends on a couple of things.Would Fox Creek , Valleyview and Grande Cache work in the GP Region if keyed in the region?
If you mean "monitoring" as in just parked on the channel (talkgroup) with no action going on, it doesn't take up anything at that point. But once there's audio traffic (or even data traffic, in some uses), a site channel is used up. On a lot of these sites, they only have 3 channels/frequencies available for voice/data, so using one up for unnecessary comms takes away 33% of the system's capacity.I had no idea it took up a channel even in a monitoring state. Good information to know.
