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?
Many RCS LE agencies have SDPD talkgroups programmed. SDPD units have RCS LE Mutual Aid talkgroups programmed [the MA talkgroups are where inter-agency operations are usually conducted, so that the impacted agency can control talkgroup loading on large events]. All RCS and City PS users have the RCS Regional Mutual Aid zone and Conventional zone programmed for interoperability.
