  • MPSCS Digital 800 Radio System

    I'm interested to hear if your fire department uses the state's digital 800 radio system and what experiences you've had with it.

      Yes, it was in the Toledo paper too. That's why I posted. This time next year we may have a whole lot of trouble communicating with you guys up there...

        800 radios

        ahh yes the lovely 800's. They are the the worst, reception sucks and you have to keep you old radio incase you don't hear dispatch! They are horrible. They dont work in the hospital or any big building either

              A major problem I have with these digital systems is the vendors/manufacturers won't guarantee 100% coverage with portables. This one doesn't even guarantee 100% coverage with mobiles!

              MPSCS guarantees 97% all-weather mobile radio coverage. While there is no guarantee of portable coverage, it has been found that the level of portable coverage usually surpasses that experienced with conventional analog systems. MPSCS personnel will work with any agency to assess coverage needs and achieve specific requirements.
              When we have an emergency, what kind of radio do you think we'll be screaming "Mayday" into?
