switch on happening soon

Post by SteveO » Thu Jun 04, 2015 7:11 am

I can't find the thread to put this in so can somebody move this to the appropriate thread and delete this one for me.

Got this info this morning.

" The new communication system implemented prior to the G20 is about to be turned on for the whole of South East Qld and police, ambulance and SES will have a much greater extent of communication capability much greater security. Crime gangs are about to face a new era! "

if the truth was told they would be still behind the gangs - they already have better comms than the average cop and they are not expected to carry house bricks for radios :-)

I was discussing this with one of the local Highway Patrol blokes a few months ago (I work part time as a TV News cameraman) and pointed out that the boy racers are always suprised... because the police use their service issued mobile phones to discuss hoon locations and intercept plans -on - the -run.

Then I pointed out to him that even drug raids are planned in secret - so secret not even the station boss or local inspector is aware until after the fact..

He reluctantly agreed...

He agreed even more when I said that 90% of the radio traffic was transport checks, and the rest were domestics...

Digital really doesnt sound very nice on analogue

20111 - QAS Gold Coast Dispatch
30209 - QFES Region 6 Dispatch
30210 - QFES Region 6 Dispatch
30211 - QFES Region 6 Dispatch
30213 - QFES Region 6 Dispatch
30214 - QFES Region 6 Dispatch

RID Ranges
41xxxxx - Queensland Police
42xxxxx - Queensland Ambulance
43xxxxx - Queensland Fire and Emergency Service

49102xx - Queensland Fire and Emergency Service Consoles
49103xx - Queensland Ambulance Service Consoles

i have noticed that all of Region 6 has changed to Digital with Ipswich and Gold Coast both using Digital at the moment, QAS are using radio Callsigns with "601 ***" the only constant is the 601 in the gold coast

The push was to get it all operational by schoolies .. I guess that will be the first major event to give the system a work out. I do like the idea that each radio now has a panic button with GPS etc. They are keeping their pagers for at least the next year so some info will pop up on that system for a while to come so not totally in the dark..yet

So the traffic is encrypted but not the radio and talkgroup IDs?

Correct as the control channel is not encrypted
