Grog said:I'm sure there was a legit reason for a volunteer fire fighter to have law enforcement frequencies where he could tranmit
But just think, he had interoperability :lol:
P.S. This reminds me of the guy on another forum who "was going to be a fire fighter" and who wanted a ton of fire/ems/police frequencies programmed for TX on a radio I was selling, yeah, no thanks :roll:
Oh I agree w/ that, but I don't think every volunteer needs transmit enabled on their radio on law enforcement frequencies. That should be left up to the sheriff or police chief of the jurisdiction. Even if they said yes, if I was the fire chief I would veto some of the people from being able to transmit on certain frequencies with their personal (or dept. issued) radios. In my volunteer agency we have most of the radios set up to scan the surrounding fire, rescue & police as well, but the police is receive only.mike_s104 said:a LONG time ago when I was on a volunteer, we had some portables with scan and all the surrounding fire and PD freqs w/ tones. I would always grab one of these in bad weather and/or accidents or calls where the PD was dispatched. it made sense to me to be able to hear what else was happening on-scene before we got there.
What can you do? Remember when the Chesterifield chief's son and his buddies smoked some port, got the munchies, dialed 911 instead of 411--and hung up?!BoxAlarm187 said:Oh man, I'd hate to be in the police chief's shoes right now. I can't imagine the political fall out from having a drone like that as a son....
