So the TWV talkgroup is now just "TW", lol. Is it a temporary thing, or is this permanent?mmartinfan said:In case anyone did not notice MEC Center is now dispatching for Violet Twp (Pick-town) Fire Department.
Exactly what I was thinking. So eventually Whitehall, and Truro are moving to MEC dispatch also?wdz said:That seems kind of interesting. All the other departments they dispatch for make sense, because they closely border miflin's area but Pickerington is way out there.
Unknown at this time. It would require a major rework of the countywide fire radio template.FPO703 said:Will 15 TWV, 15 Violet, 15 White, & 15 Truro be absorbed in to the MEC Center 'band plan' of talkgroups like the old Jefferson, Plain, etc... TGs were?
Well I believe Grandview and Worthington are the only FDs in Franklin County that are still not using the FCCA Trunking system.FPO703 said:Why would Grandview go? I'm waiting for their FD to be absorbed into one of the neighboring FDs or in to Columbus.
The PA has been in place at Truro for quite some time, for mutual aid purposes up to now.Slawterr said:Just a small update. Just a smidge. MEC just tested the PA at Truro 161's. Looks like the ball is rolling. I'll post again if I hear them dispatch.
What technical issues? The channel is data only unless they changed something very recently, with MEC CENTER used for voice. BTW, MEC uses the former Plain Twp VHF frequency, not Jefferson's VHF frequency, which is now used by Jefferson Twp road maintenance. They never had a UHF channel to my knowledge.Also, I was thinking of what kind technical problems could appear adding Violet and Truro since MEC uses the old Jefferson UHF frequency for PA control. Anyone want to satisfy my need for details?
