I see in the RCS Board Meeting Agenda for this week that there is a request by CHP to increase their radio count to from 177 to 197. If they are using that many radios, then why are they not using their TGs everywhere :?:

According to the just posted RCS meeting minutes, CHP extended their RCS contract to August 2008, then last month extended it until August 2009. I guess they like the service after all :)

The 177 radios cover the El Cajon office operations, plus a limited number of radios for Oceanside and San Diego areas, plus some for Border Division staff.

According to a note in the LEAN August meeting minutes, the CHP Chief stated that they plan to stay on RCS for the next 2-1/2 to 3 years, and plan on a new radio system within 5 years.

Has anyone else noticed that El Cajon CHP is patched or simulcasting on their RCS and Gold channels? It has been this way since at least yesterday.

I think I know. CHP received a grant of 250K for extra patrols and OT on the 67 to see if they can cut down on the DUIs and speeding. They probably had to bring in officers & vehicles from other areas and they don't have the RCS radios.

It was funny today to see my scanner stopped on the GOLD and the Dispatcher say "10-9 please. You went digital!"
