Re: New RISCON Zone

So here we go: :pint: East Zone was a 3 year project and designed to be a flip-the-switch endeavor. South will be separated from the new East zone in the very near future. All TG's currently used by the towns in the new zone will be East Zone only TG's. There are no immediate plans for any "new" TG'...

RI Youth Training School

Since the RI Youth Training School has come up on RISCON, they have totally abandon their old UHF allocations, 453.600/453.875 and 460.075 can be removed from that listing. All their operations are conducted on RISCON.

They are patching FD UHF to RISCON until repairs are made to the FD UHF system. They took a lightning hit last week.

Re: TF Green VHF

I have TF Green ARFF as 154.355 pl 100 and TF Green Operations as 154.995 pl 100.0. I would think it was the dispatcher hitting the wrong button on the console unless they were sending someone from Operations to meet Warwick FD at a vehicle gate and escort them to the aircraft.

Re: Coventry PD

Coventry PD is alive and well on their 800 TG's.

Coventry FD will patch their UHF to 800 for an incident where mutual aid is incoming to town.

Re: East Providence Fire

Thanks for the clarification Bill. They are FutureCom DVRS units that are able to operate in full repeater or simplex mode. Most FD's in RI use them in simplex mode to be compliant with NFPA communications and safety standards. Basically, those standards call for analog simplex on the fireground. I ...

Re: East Providence Fire

Mike, As Bill said earlier in this thread, posting input freqs is a violation of SNE policy. Since the EPFD devices are set-up as simplex units, the input is the same as the output freq. I do not want to violate the policy, Hence, I will not be providing the DVRS freqs. And, as an FYI, Cranston FD w...

I will say that they are using 800Mhz radios only at this time and all EPFD ops are on RISCON. They wil patch to their old UHF if need...
