"Centeral to AP6 on City Fire"
Andrew, thanks for the footwork. You make a good detective. I must have misread your previous post. I thought you meant 154.31, the State Fire, when you mentioned County Fire (154.13). Yes, County Fire 154.13 (transmitters and receivers) does not use PL.. But the Spanish transmissions are on 154.31 and I think they are using PL (I captured the PL once with my Uniden). However the NM State Fire receivers are not using any PL (also their transmitters naturally) so that they can pick up any transmission on 154.31 whether or not that transmission has a PL. If the State Fire were using any PL other than that of the Spanish stations, then the State Fire receivers will not hear the Spanish stations. Now because the State transmitters are not using a PL, the receiver for the patching interface into the LC Fire trunking (ID 03-170) has to use no PL. Consequently when listening to the trunking for CLC, 03-170 will rebroadcast the Spanish stations. Try monitoring 03-170 when not required, you will hear the Spanish stations. They are on the air more often than the NM State Fire stations are.andrew_m said:Ok, I talked to a DASO officer, he said that antenna is for the new GPS tracking system for the units. He also said to tell you not to be spying on him, haha. I got a 911 so couldn't ask any more questions.
..And usally I don't hear spanish over county fire, without a PL, but the Tac channels have it alot. And 03-170 is the patch to State Fire, not county. I usally have that talkgroup locked out unless there is a big MVA and MedicVac uses State Fire for L/Z info.
I suspect it is the MVRDA, the Mesilla Valley Regional Dispatch Authority, where poster Andrew_m works now. He can better answer your question than I with more specifics. In fact, you might have talked to him whenever you called over to LC.CapSS92 said:Quick question for you guys, I work for El Paso Fire Dispatch and we sometimes call New Mexico when we get cell calls from NM that hit El Paso towers and get routed to us. What is the New Mexico Central Communications? That is the dept we call but I don't know anything about it. Just curious. Thanks.
