Don, congratulations on a well deserved retirement! I'm sure that I speak for folks on this San Diego forum when I say thank you for all of the tips and input that you have given this group in the past 17 years. We wish you a very pleasant transition into retirement. Please don't be a stranger here; we've always valued your thoughts and opinions and look forward to the same---as time permits!

@Don. I saw that your location avatar said VA which got me thinking. Google search didn't turn up any county of san diego news feeds about your retirement. Hell, even the RCS webpage shows you are still the Ops Manager.

As a former Deputy, I want to say thank you for all of your years of hard work, especially after the 2003 and 2007 wildfires which fundamentally changed how public safety agencies moved forward with their communication centers and radios.

Fair winds and following seas, good sir. May retirement bring about more adventures and less taxes!

Thank you. Thursday was my last day. I suspect it will take a couple of days for the web team to get to the page to update it.

As I posted on social media, "man. what a ride." From VHF conventional in the 1970s to 800 MHz P25 today, and all of the other technological changes I've witnessed, it has been quite a career. Now, to go do some different fun things ...

Looks like National City is doing some TDMA.
Correct that’s just been updated, although there’s still a mix of FDMA and TDMA on their talk groups. The way P25 Phase II systems work is the zone controller keeps track of all radios affiliated with that talkgroup, and if they are all TDMA capable then the system automatically switches the talkgroup to TDMA. If any older non-TDMA capable radios are also affiliated then that talkgroup will revert to Phase I FDMA.

National City PD must have mostly updated their radios, because the majority of their comms are now TDMA with the occasional FDMA mixed in.

Not many south zone agencies have made the switch yet. The only full time TDMA agencies on south as far as I can tell are Grossmont College PD and CALTRANS.
