I heard that the entire MSP Trunked System was taken down at around 1040 AM this morning due to some system issues and would be out-of-service until the problem(s) were resolved. I'd imagine that those who had low-band capability were advised to use this as a means of communication in conjunction with cell 'phones.

I'd also presume that scanner company tech support lines would have been busy as well, as consumers might have thought there units had failed.

The system appears to be up and running as of now (1606 Hrs.)

It was only offline for a brief few minutes, nothing too pressing happened.

It was completely uneventful at my agency, and we continued to use the system throughout. No notice of any site trunking messages.

From what I heard it sounded like it was down for seconds and was a planned reboot or something. Perhaps a an upgrade. It was just interesting communications of how they talk about the different parts of the system. Tom I hope you do know that even when the system controller does go down or links that they have several modes of back up operation before they need to go to the low band.

Site Trunking - where only the Zone talks to itself
FailSoft - where the Zones go to basic CSQ Repeater mode and continually BEEP , users are allocated a Freq by (Config) generally Troop
ITACS and MSP Repeaters (800)
followed by Low Band
