Just heard some radio testing on Caltrans frequency 856.9875 CTCSS 146.2. Were saying things like "testing satellite connect system" "testing Nextel connect system" and stuff like that. After about 5 minutes of that CHP dispatch came up saying that the testing was covering units on CHP Black. The CHP dispatcher asked from what location they were transmitting and the radio service person said the Caltrans building at 1120 N St in Sacramento.

my GUESS is that they were testing a raytheon acu jam 1000 or something like that

a multi radio cross connect platform.. chp likes to buy them

Raytheon Company: ACU-1000

they work ok - but the problem with the state is.. they like to pile on 3 and 4 groups together
if i remember right in the docs you can only stack 2 deep on the same levelto have it reliably talk to the multiple radios otherwise it jams up hence acu jam 1000
