Nope. Despite being dispatched by the Southeastern CDC (I don't particularly care to say the name of the town because it's a town that's really unworthy of eminating from my lips), Skippack and Philadelphia are still on the base-mobile duplex system (which gets really annoying when you're in the middle of Chester County and trying to get Avondale station, which shares a channel with Skippack and Philly; I really don't care if Farmer Brown's cow escaped from some farm in Upper Hanover when I want to hear get some details on an MVA just outside of Oxford).ocguard said:Are all station channels being converted to full repeater mode as their dispatching is taken over by the CDCs? Does anyone know about a timeline for the York station in relation to this?
Is that really necessary?ctrabs74 said:Nope. Despite being dispatched by the Southeastern CDC (I don't particularly care to say the name of the town because it's a town that's really unworthy of eminating from my lips),
Lancaster and Ephrata are still dispatched by the Harrisburg CDC...only they're on OpenSky and not VHF. Jonestown Station will be the next to move over to OpenSky (date unknown, at least to me).ctrabs74 said:Prior to migrating to OpenScam, I think Lancaster and Ephrata stations were being dispatched by Harrisburg CDC and still operating on duplex. Sounds like E channel (Berks) might just be a fluke, but I can't really answer that at all...
PennDOT has encountered coverage issues across the northern tier of PA (the coverage is still very spotty in some counties across the north). The problem you're referenceing was in the northeast (District 4) and was publicized in the news media.ocguard said:PSP stations are using OpenSky for voice now? I wasn't aware. I had heard a rumor that PennDot had abandoned their OpenSky radios and re-installed lowband radios in their vehicles because of excessive coverage lapses.
