The Emscomm channels are in use down here in Tucson. Plenty to be heard, but rather sedate...no pun intendedThat's what the intent was for this system. Nowadays, most patches are done via cellphones.
Med 5 is designated as the statewide calling channel for setting up patches but usually just carries DPS Ranger helicopter flight following traffic; Med 9 is/was used in Tucson for ambulance and helicopter system status management.
Here's the official site
send me a private message when you're in town. Always nice to chat with a fellow radio enthusiast (especially up here, where I feel like the only one.)Thanks for the info on Flagstaff. EMSCOM seems pretty dead around here (Casa Grande/Coolidge/Florence area) but I'll be Flagstaff latter this year.
Its an analog conventional 15 channel 463 Mhz multi site repeater system. I would think the sites at Hualapai Mtn and Willow Beach should give pretty good coverage. Also, I believe you can patch to Clark County Las Vegas Fire Control as well. (At least you could when I was working EMS in Kingman in the 80s )Can anyone tell me about the EMSCOM system in AZ? Is it an analog or digital? Conventional or trunking? We're being required by our base hospital in Kingman to install the radios for hospital patch. I'm wondering if it's even going to work in the far northwest corner of Mojave County where we work. Haven't as of yet been able to get in touch with anyone at DPS that can tell me what we need to buy. Thanks for any info you guys can share.
