So that probably means LAPD and LAFD won't be on the RICS.

I am not sure why you keep thinking that if one agency does something that all other agencies will do the same thing with their radio systems.cvrules90 wrote:So that probably means LAPD and LAFD won't be on the RICS.
The reason for that is timing. The City 800 system came online in 1992; the RCS in 1998. And having two systems in the metropolitan area works quite well, as SDPD and SDFD TGs are programmed into RCS LE and Fire units (and the RCS Mutual Aid TGs in City units).cvrules90 wrote:WEll for some reason the city and county are independent worlds. I mean San Diego City has it's own trunked radio system while the county is on a seperate one. Maybe Cali needs to opt for independent cities...zz0468 wrote:I wouldn't expect the City of Riverside to ever do anything just because the county did it. Quite the opposite, actually.
Yes, that is what I said. There is a Countywide common fire fleetmap that has both RCS and SDFD talkgroups programmed.cvrules90 wrote:With that said, does that mean the San Diego City Police and Fire radios have RCS police/fire/ambulance mutual aid programmed in as well?
