A few of the LifeNet helos like to use the Douglas County ORION when they fly around Omaha - and the Omaha crew has portables on it.LifeNet was testing over TG 50723 yesterday. From what I gather, there is a disagreement that is ongoing (or settled??) between LifeNet and the State over using the SRS. Since LifeNet is a "for profit entity", vs the SRS is open only to "non profit entity". LifeNet is over ORION on a occasional basis, at least when I visit Omaha, or when I can hear ORION during tropo enhancement. Douglas County may have a different agreement on handling "for profit entites".
Kind of odd that there is a disagreement since City of Norfolk owns the 800 SRS site. Unless there is something I don't know.
The Racom Norfolk site is still spewing out CC data noise, but its been silent since roughly the end of July, or I haven't been around to catch anything on it.
