Using Multiple Frequencies
We have two stations in our department, each with a separate radio frequency. We have being doing a few large scale mock command drills that involved both stations and our radio traffic is a mess. We are working on one channel only and between communications between sectors, sector leaders, and IC you can't get a word in edgewise! We have talked about using the two separate frequencies on scene, one for operations and one for command. The problem then is how to monitor? Does the IC and each sector leader need two radios on seperate channels so they can talk to all parties? Some of us have trouble working just one radio.;) I guess in short what I am asking is did anyone else have this issue before and how did you overcome the problem?
Thanks in advance!
