Seems it collapsed as designed from the weight of the wind/ice.

RISCON is a Trunked System where the frequencies are shared by many agencies/departments. Generally you enter the Control Channels [could be up-to 4, newer systems more] for the nearest Tower/Zone/Site Then you enter the Talk-groups which define which agency uses the channel at that time. Not all ag...

I can confirm that Medford uses the Metro North District Fireground (482.1875 - 141.3) as their Channel 2. It is simplex, so you won't hear anything unless you are in the immediate vicinity (which I was, recently).
