I have created a channel called Radio Communication Network-(RCN), so if anyone enters i will see them. First you will need to sign up for a new account all for free and secured, then find the channel group. I think this is great for all public safety, Volunteers, Skywarn, Families and so on.
John, We have been in discussion on that, but the Part 95 Rules may have a problem with that and vaige. The problem is that when out of the area the
person connecting with that to a GMRS system will not be hearing a co-channel station when communicating and is causing anticipated harmful interference. Remember by checking the frequency in CSQ, before keying up to see if it is Clear.
The problem is there are too many GMRS systems on the Air, in the NYC Metro Area.
FYI Public safety agencies here, in NJ now have what is call Mutualink which is installed at PSAP, PSDC and Mobile
Command Posts, Hospitals, OEM & FBI. It now has a IPone App. now. That is why SPEN Radio now is limited use. My agency is
now in the Planning and Budget stages of leaving the VHF Conventional System to the New NJ Public Safety Interoerabilty Comm
System and going with Secure. Many agencies in the Essex and Bergen County area, are headed to this system.
