Re: DMR use with public safety.

I was talking with a suburban fire chief today. He said that there is going to be more use of the various fire district interop channels and far less of departments using each others channels on mutual aid calls. I mentioned the Stow PD system and he pointed out that police generally make far less ...

Re: DMR use with public safety.

Read the NIOSH report on the Lancaster Mass fire. Then we'll talk about interoperability. That being said, what was the issue or lessons learned from this fatal fire? One of the issues was the lack of communications between abutting towns that constantly ran to the same calls together. It's all wel...

Yes, when communities are migrating to P25 it leaves the surrounding communities out. When encryption is used or communities are on different bands it creates a problem. When going to P...

Re: DMR public safety

Thank you Gary. That's all fine and dandy that there are radios out there that do multi-mode, but that doesn't help the outside agencies or surrounding communities that don't have the multi-mode radios. Since when does it become the responsibility of other agencies to adhere to a non-standard format...

DMR use with public safety.

DMR is not a viable alternative to P25 in public safety. It is contrary to all the established protocols for public safety interoperability. This is a case of an agency not being informed and a salesman willing to just make a sale and money.
