Boy, do I feel stupid

All this time I thought they could use VHF to talk to other departments and it turns out they needed 800mhz to do it.

[sarcasm off]

I do like that bank of radios in the fire truck.

It does look like a rats nest in some trucks. I remember when I was working at MWC EMS....3 radios...GEEZ!

It's wild in the fire trucks now....I've got a VHF mobile, 800 mobile, 2-800 portable chargers and 1-VHF portable charger plus all the brush trucks now have Sigtronics intercom/headset systems with a control box and 2 headsets in each truck....there's stuff everywhere! You can only fit so much stuff on a transmission hump!

The command units have an additional UHF mobile in them too for OCSO stuff.....lol

We still run VHF only. Anyone we run mutual aid with that is on 800, we either swap radios with them or have a dual IC. Other plans are in the works though.

So, I guess no 800 for us out west, again. I just hope they can keep the supply of tubes available.
