I was half asleep yesterday and overheard EMS saying that they were going to be using Mutual Aid 26, 27 and 28, but I don't know for what.

They also have 2-A the original Traffic channel patched to the current Traffic channel 1-O for some reason.

I have Aid 36 popping up with talk about parking downtown at Rivercenter. Maybe Parade stuff. Bexar County radio ID's.

Possible shared info channel on M AID-45 - I haven't reviewed the patches on the system yet but they've got a BCSO dispatcher running this channel.

BCSO units that are on 1-N are part of the new TAG unit that started in January. Probably watching Fiesta events for any gang activity(which I remember from awhile awhile back that Oyster Bake and the Carnival have had their problems.)

Medical Branch on M/A 26, 27 and 28

Lots of Fiesta Traffic on PD System 2

Heard PD to EMS Branch on PD 2-E making numerous requests for EMS assets. Depending on nature, Bike Medics were sent, other times actual EMS units responded with Bike Meds first responding. No Medic units were heard on 2-E, just medical branch liaison.

lots of patching going on.

Continued traffic on M/A 31

Thanks for the updates. Trying to keep track of the Aid channels and what is patched to what is gets crazy at times. I still see 1-O patched to 2-A and Aid 31.
