it looks like the p.d is going digital. we can forget listening to them in the future.
155.085 is a fireground frequency. its just used in the h.t.
some new frequencies but they look to be for repeaters. for years there was problems
with the radio system. then we went to the voice boxes which were useless.
go over the boston ave hill or way out in the westside the dispatcher cant even hear you.
154.995 NAC505 - Bridgeport new frequency
Radio ID:1 was the base - in the clear and "coded"
Other unit testing was Radio ID: 2163 -totally in the clear testing
Interesting, he had the base go "coded" and she talked a little (radio ID:1) (encrypted)
His response was that "this could be a safety issue...I can hear the difference when you were coded and it could be a safety issue"
More testing this time in ANALOG mode, PL 192.8
Also got the CW ID a few times
From a post on the CT Fire/EMS forums:
"The long awaited combined fire and police dispatch center is slated to go on line next week. The FD will be cutting over on Tuesday 4/27 and the PD on Thursday 4/29."
Thanks for the update about their new comm center coming online within the next week. It seems like it has been a long time coming. From what I heard is that it is also going to be a regional EOC as well.
In regards to the radio system how is the progress on that tower by the City hall that it going up?
I knew they were going online on Tuesday. So from what I gather, PD is going to be encrypted and FD in the clear as there's no real reason to encrypt them. I listen to PD but I can deal not being able to hear them. if there's a shoot or a stabing you're gonna hear it over med 9 but I will be at a serious loss if I can't hear the FD.
