    Default FF complain about radios

    http://www.firehouse.com/topic/techn...s-prompts-tune

    Does anybody know what kind of radio system they are on? Is it P25? I did some more research on P25 failures and found this blog...scary stuff...

    Marzano said that is to be expected, and that no radio system can effectively provide a signal across a large county and work well inside buildings.

    The solution -- one that has been recommended by federal agencies -- is to switch back to the old system, which enables direct radio-to-radio contact with no towers involved, he said.
    We use a P25 system configured as above. All the mobiles in the vehicles and communications center use the digital trunking system. All the portables default to analog (non trunking). This allows better reception and range in vehicles but also allows point-to-point coverage between firefighters and IC.
