New tactical channel plan
Ok, so during our dept meeting last night, one of the points that was brought up was a call we had the night before where there were multiple agencies running different fire calls, but people were still walking on top of each other a bit. Right now we have a main repeater, a second repeater for a somewhat isolated area of the county, and a tactical channel. The problem is that nobody seems to want to switch over to the tac channel. Instead they just sit on the repeater channel even when on the same fireground and operate on that. The tac channel would work perfectly fine, line of sight isn't THAT bad.
So, after my Chief mentioned he was interested in getting with the other Chiefs in the county to get the radios reprogrammed to use a stronger tac channel plan, I volunteered to draw up the plan, since I have past communications and CUL experience with Civil Air Patrol. I recommended using the national tactical channels and he agreed.
I will hopefully be submitting the plan to my Chief in the next day or two. Yes I know that's the opinion that really counts since there are specifics to my county that people here are not familiar with, however I just wanted to get some reviews of the plan here too.
