Hey everyone,
I had a search around but cloud not find anything so thought i whoud post here sorry if any Double ups.

My Primary Scanning comes of a Motorola Trunking type 2 network.

Is the a database on RR to put the radio Id to match them to there call sign? Eg dispatch ,firetrucks etc, The kind one that don't change radios hence keep the same ID.
If it does not exceit is it possible to get it added in some form?

Chears :)

No, we don't store radio ID's in the database.

Most people store radio ID's in the Wiki.
I'd also point out that it is not permissible to enter personally identifying data against radio IDs. For example, it's OK to say that "ID 1860259 is Anytown PD," but it is not permissible to say that "ID 1860259 is Anytown PD Officer Smith."

It's also important to note that listings for IDs may not necessarily be accurate all the time. Many departments do not have the resources to dedicate vehicles to specific assignments (or assign portable radios to specific positions), so a vehicle which is used for District 2 one day may be used for District 5 the next day. So, the Wiki listing for an ID may be correct on Tuesday, but not Wednesday (or even shift by shift).
