This is a side effect of the Smartzone system. Transmitting in a given location is not in their "control". If a user in the mountains starts monitoring BRFD-A, the system will start simulcasting in that area.Looks like Barstow Fire as of today is now dispatching on "The Mountain Simulcast Site"
Yes, this makes sense because the last few days Barstow Fire is quiet on the Mountain System now.This is a side effect of the Smartzone system. Transmitting in a given location is not in their "control". If a user in the mountains starts monitoring BRFD-A, the system will start simulcasting in that area.
Exactly this. I just did a big update last night but if you don't make submissions we're not likely to see this thread and make changes just based on your forum posts.If you have something to share, or see something that needs updating kindly submit the pertinent info and it will get worked.
You can probably stick a fork in it - looks like the 6-System is done as of today. The last of the Type-II analogs in the county is off the air.System 6/7 doesn’t appear to have Fire radio traffic on it anymore, but is still online as far as I can see. The dispatch consoles changed their IDs so I think they got those switched over.
That looks exactly like what I would expect a private call between two radios to look like on a scanner.So I wanted to share this picture of I think private conversations that come over once in a while on the Mountain system and no talkgroup shows up. Only unit ID's. Here is a picture of what I see. Does anybody know how this happens. Seems like private chit chat conversations.
