LID's are the identifier of the radio when they key up on the TRS.. i.e if you are windfall engine 1 (i dunno their numbers) your LID could be WINDE1 or something so the dispatcher knows who they are talking to other than just voice.

oh, well in that case, you may be out of luck unless you call the FCC and inform them there is a station interfering with your station. Im there theres more than a few FCC undercover people in the metro area that could assist you.

Or you could contact your local ham club. I am sure there are some hams in your area that have direction finding capabilities that would love the hunt....

Sounds like Morgan County Fire on 154.370. They have the same problem.Someone has a open mic and you hear a man and a woman taking in the background.After 5 to 10 minutes the problem goes away
