Springfield shut the equipment down after a change in ops, and the county determined it was unnecessary to continue a countywide simulcast of TG4443.I recently noticed silence on this frequency and also see it was deleted from the DB.
Cranford, the same as all other participating municipalities, is dispatched on County Fire Dispatch, TG 4443. They operate on Fireground 6, TG 4629. Nothing has changed. Bad assumption.OK, therefore I assume for example Cranford FD now dispatches only on NJICS TG 4629 even though the DB does NOT list this TG as "fire dispatch"? If so, shouldn't these Union County fireground talkgroups be renamed as "fire dispatch AND ops"?
Of course it matters, as evidenced in this situation. 453.950 is licensed to Springfield, not the county, and they decided they no longer needed/wanted a simulcast of the county dispatch on their channel.Does it really matter what the frequency is licensed to?
I never said any such thing. The point I was making is that 460.100 is licensed to the county, therefore they're not at the mercy of anyone else when it comes to the use of the frequency.Are you saying that since 460.100 is licensed to the county, it will never go silent or be deprecated?
