I have not received any dispatches on 153.890 MHz in over 20 hours. I have picked up traffic from San Mateo S Dispatch as well as some radio testing. Is anyone else experiencing this? Anyone know what is going on? Thanks!

After hearing lots of tone testing on both 153.890 and FDSP B I just got a dispatch on 153.890 but it was not heard on FDSP B.

Now getting dispatching as normal on both 153.890 and FDSP B.

Traffic on 154.190 was normal as far as I know. I found it odd that there were no dispatches on 153.890 for such a long period of time, although the B channels on the SRRCS were normal.

Yes indeed normal traffic resumed sometime Saturday after I posted this. Very interesting.

Today at around 10am I heard some radio testing on both 153.890 and FDSP B between fire dispatch and 22-??. After about 3 radio tests 22-?? said "equipment swap complete"

what do you mean by 22-?? was it an employee number like say 2401? or 7150?
22 is Sac FD's radio/badge IDs. must have been one of the city radio guys? but why were they on FDSP A?

Yes is was a 22-?? unit, I think it was 22-61 or 22-71 but don't remember for sure.

My bad, it was FDSP B not FDSP A. Corrected above.

I could hear the 22-?? unit and fire dispatch on both 153.890 and FDSP B at the same time.

I have also started getting what sounds like a control channel today on 868.4375 but not sure if it's connected to the "equipment swap" or not.
