Trunk Tracker Codes

Currently, Fayette County 911 is operating a two-site simulcast Motorola Smartnet Type II
Trunked Radio System.  All of the Fire departments and all but one of the ambulance services
are utilizing the Trunked Radio System.  Numerous Police Departments are utilizing the
Trunked Radio System with the remaining police departments working on purchasing
the radios to work on the trunked radio system.

The Type II Talkgroups are broke down into several tables detailing each service.  The

MA Channels are duplicated in all blocks for ease of reference..

Notes:
*    With the exception of some of the radios on the system, an alpha-numeric display is provided
on the radio that displays the complete channel name as displayed in Column 1.  Certain Radios,
such as the Motorola GTX series radios only display a 2 digit identifier such as 1A 1B, etc.
This is why there are 2 channel names for the same channel.  The 911 dispatcher will advise
ops channel as "Your Operations Channel is FD09, 2A".

**    All announcement talk groups operate as follows:  An Announcement group gives the
dispatcher an easy way to transmit a priority message to all radios on any channel operating
within a certain group.  As an example: If a radio is selected to receive any channel in the FD
group (except the MA channels) and a dispatcher transmits a message on FD_ANNCE then
all radios that have an FD channel selected will here the announcement regardless of which
FD channel that the radio is operating.

***    Operations channels are assigned at the discretion of the 911 Dispatcher and 911
Dispatch Policy.

****    A general chit-chat channel has been designated in each of the services for the ease of
non-emergency traffic.  Anything and everything could appear here.  This could be thought
of as the CB Channel 19 of our trunked radio system.

*****    A channel has been established to provide backup communications with Allegheny Power.
One radio is in Greensburg the other is at the Lake Lynn Power Plant for APS.  Other users are on
this channel.  This channel provides a comm link between 911/EMA and APS for Lake Lynn.
It also provides a backup link for APS Greensburg to communicate with the Lake Lynn Power
Plant.  Flood waters that rise take out the microwave link between Lake Lynn Power Plant and
the rest of the APS system.  Unfortunately when that happens, their telephones at Lake Lynn
Power Plant go out.  Hence the need for this backup communications link.
