FireService CH07

Post by deadite66 »

Started hearing more DMR being used on this channel and what i've heard has been pretty weird, i'm sure its can't be local.

anyone else heard it and has any ideas?

Heard this too. Last couple of evenings (Wed/Thu 28/29 Sep) it seems to have been used for an exercise I believe from what I heard at/near Great Yarmouth rail station. The talkgroup & colour code matched the fire service national allocation for channel 7 (Service allocated). I was only getting one sided conversations, what I was getting was coming in fairly strong so I assume that side was coming from some sort of higher powered control unit and I was not receiving the handset replies. As an aside I often hear some sort of comms on 449.3125 re movement of rolling stock, I assume from the sidings at Great Yarmouth, Thursday they complained they couldn't do a movement as there was a fire engine in the way!

it does make more sense its part of a training exercise someone at work suggested the same, one of the things i heard would have been national news if it was real.

From what I have been able to monitor Norfolk Fire & Rescue Service (in Great Yarmouth anyway) are primarily using analogue still, only noted DMR active when incidents involve the attendance of cross border (i.e. Suffolk) appliances.

Suffolk have some tech savvy firefighters who own some very nice digital radios that might possibly be doing multiple jobs. VHF and UHF capable, and DMR too. If you owned your own radio that could access two separate work radio networks, would you? I think I would
