UNC Chapel Hill has been granted a new analog license for fire protection operations this is a repeater with two locations.
Subjective at best.My thoughts if its
low VHFUHF its for building penetration.
Guess not if its UHF, thought itll still do better than 800. Its probably more for the campus fire marshals, as I dont think the university has a real fire department, they use city of Chapel Hills FD. I know NCSU has just fire marshals for comparison as well (they respond to everything but dont do anything); so probably setup the same way.
If only the mobile repeater (VRS / DVRS / Suitcase repeaters) and "direct" channels where the modus operandi across the board.Chapel Hill Fire runs all fire alarms to UNC campus with rare help from UNC. I’m not really sure what this is for. CHFD uses viper and we have hard time some times getting reception in buildings. I haven’t heard of any news of going to another radio system. We have a mobile repeater for the viper network that’s in the battalion car and direct radio to radio channels for better reception
