The Motorola is an 800mhz scanner for the local fd pd trunking system. It has tx capability on the 8tac channels which we have authority to use.
Seriously! That video made me almost lose my breakfast. Having gas stored on a fire truck in a safety can and secured is one thing, but any type of container with flammable liquid loose in a passenger vehicle is a bomb. To add to the danger, there was open power wiring to his radios shown in the video. That clip of his van stopped on the shoulder of the highway with a tandem tractor trailer zooming by was frightening knowing that a gas can was in the rear of his van.You do know that having GAS stored in that configuration if you are involved in a wreck is not secure and is a big risk. We carry our GAS on the rigs in spring loaded safety cans and secured as to not move around.
Authorized by what agency having jurisdiction? 7/8-TAC repeaters are licensed by agencies who own the repeaters and are only authorized by that agency for use by public safety personnel authorized by said agency for mutual aid public safety operations. When you say "we" what agency having jurisdiction are you referring to?The Motorola is an 800mhz scanner for the local fd pd trunking system.

I see your point, the cops in my Township are very busy and deal with a lot of disabled vehicles on crowded highways. Safety is always the concern and the duty tow is very prompt to render assistance or remove the DV, they certainly wouldn't want to be dealing with this guy in the way. Police concern would be unsafe obstruction of their rendering assistance to a disabled vehicle and trying to maintain the safety of this guy at the same time. They would probably see it more of a nuisance call.Or the warning would be the hook, and they'd have him pull everything out in the impound lot before ROR'ing him.
