Had the 700 system on for a while tonight, and NOTHING was there. Between midnight and 1am. Several hot calls on the 800 system.Last night, Western was working a crash at 1AM...two 700MHz radio units went to D2 to coordinate. The conversation was only coming across on 700MHz, and was not receivable on the 800MHz Western D2 talkgroup. Assuming they are set up to only pass audio between the 700 and 800 sites if a radio is affiliated on both simultaneously. Similarly, 7A and 7B are up on 700MHz in the day, but not at night.
My understanding is that SDFD is programmed, and is waiting for the RCS fire agencies to complete the transition to P25 before switching over en mass.SDPD is supposed to be fully reprogrammed by September 26, but as far as I know, SDFD hasn't even begun to reprogram their radios. With the poor audio between the systems, it is unsettling what firefighters on a working incident will have to deal with during thre transition, audio quality/intelligibility wise.
