Does Boone County have the Dearborn Indiana site to use aswell?Just a few observations I have made so far.
The system sounds very good!
I am seeing some FD talkgroups in FDMA mode, this effectively cuts the traffic channel in half and they don't have a large number of traffic channels to begin with. Not sure if this is because someone has a Phase I radio affiliated with the system (I thought they said this wasn't going to be allowed) or if this is being done intentionally, possibly for fire ground audio quality reasons?
I am seeing a lot of talkgroups that are crossing (roaming) the sites. This will be interesting to track as more users join the system to see how this effects site loading, particularly for Kenton County being in the middle. In TDMA mode they only have 10 traffic channels per site so if they have a lot of talkgroups talking on all of the site at the same time this could be an issue. Add in a FDMA talkgroup or two and it could be a major issue.
