Just upgraded my radio to 325P2 and have been programming it for the local FiRST trunk. Can't find any info about Easton Hospital patch. Are they on FiRST? Are they using the older system? Does anyone have frequency/group details? Thanks in advance.
Lol, try the battery life of a PSR-800 - that defines the word "short"!Thanks, boatbod. The FiRST system has been quite busy here today and I'm picking up all pertinent department communications, from grass fires to heroine overdoses and traffic stops. Only complaint now is the very short battery life in the 325P2 (maybe 4 hours per set of 2 AAs).
Thanks for the info. Didn't realize that, but should have. There's only one statewide Med talkgroup, but I've only been picking up transmissions from the county talk groups I have active. Still learning...Something else to consider, since, with FIRST, each county has it's own "cell" as opposed to the old UMESC where the entire system was one big simulcast... depending on what cell your scanner is locked on to, you may not hear calls on talk groups that aren't currently affiliated to your cell. In other words, an ambulance in Easton and going to Easton hospital may not be heard if you're only listening to the Queen Anne's cell. Food for thought.
