Hey I have a question for all you trunking experts two or three times lately on the State DPS system I have heard troopers say their radios were site trunking and they couldn't get out at that time. What's going on? Thanks
It means the site lost com with the main system and is working on it's own. ie. They cannot communicate with someone on another site or smothly move between sites. That happens when a site looses com with it's neighbors.n5bew1 said:Hey I have a question for all you trunking experts two or three times lately on the State DPS system I have heard troopers say their radios were site trunking and they couldn't get out at that time.

We had a problem like this here a little while ago, only thing is that all sites are linked by microwave and one site lost it's microwave, but there is no ability to pick a site - you get the site that's in the area of your radio. The radio's on that site could talk to each other but could not talk to a radio on another site - a lot of them could not talk to dispatch - the switching between sites on a large multi site system not designed to be manual but by majic. My understanding is that the ability to switch is switching systems not sites within a system.phil_smith said:From my understanding, the smartzone sites are linked by a T1 and if that connection goes down they go on "site trunking". The Preston site does this alot; if we have units on the Preston site I can switch to it manually and speak/hear them but then switch to another site to communicate with everyone on the Tulsa or Bristow sites.
If a site goes isolated how can dispatch access it??phil_smith said:here, only dispatch can choose a site manually, units just allocate automatically.
We have 3 sites that cover our county, but it's only like every 2 or 3 months one will go down for a couple hours untill they can get techs out there.
You must have many local dispatches or a small syatem.phil_smith said:Dispatch is not out of range of it, and we are not connected via T1, the sites are connected to each other. our console still allocates over the air.
Creek Co Dispatch is in Sapulpa, OK... We are in range of 3 sites on the State Smartzone system: 001 Tulsa, 013 Preston, and 002 Bristow sites. The system has a total of 11 active sites right now, with more that are to be up soon.seamusg said:You must have many local dispatches or a small syatem.
