I love my radio it can pick up all kinds of bleedover from other counties and I hear what they are up too. How is that for range pretty good huh? Wait a minute now that I think about it what do I care what they are doing when I can't even hear my own guys or the dispatcher...
Could it of happened here?
Mar 18, 2010 ... Eight channels, six repeater sites, 800 MHz ... go to OpenSky due to "problems with voice over IP" and "Open Sky is still good for data, ... Motorola withdrew from the bidding process, claiming it was rigged for M/A-COM ...

I am wondering - is this a problem with MA-COM equipment itself, ..... their way over to the 800mhz OpenSky radio system with some problems. ...

Thanks for the info Guest...Come to think of it my radio one night instead of flashing CCSCAN on the blue led flashed GUEST. How strange is that?
So... it has been 20 months since this post and nothing has changed except the CELL PHONES don't work either!! The letter from Harvey was absolutely worthless and only highlighted the lack of planning, on behalf of CCSO and Sprint, in completing this process!! To make matters worse, the only reason we renewed our contract with Sprint was because of the "Push to Talk"... SCREW push to talk!!! That is why we have Tac channels!! We should have went with Verizon and been done with it. So much for the communications committee! What a waste of time they are! They had absolutely no say in renewing the cell phone contract or in forcing the county to fix the radio problems. At the end of the day, BR made the decision to go with Sprint and BF3 protects the county with the radio failures... BR needs to go, he is absolutely WORTHLESS!!!!!!!!!!!
HELLO!!! If you want the cell phone problem fixed and the radio problems fixed then get rid of the "Leadership" in communications and replace the dead wood with some forward thinkers who are not afraid of change!!!!! RA, BF2, BF3, BR, SB et al... need to GO!!!! Then maybe you could keep dispatchers, reduce the shortages and create a better working environment as icing on the cake. Many problems solved with a simple change in management. And hurry before someone gets hurt due to the continued lack of performance with the cell phones and radios. Failure to act will result in things only getting worse (If that is even possible).
I'll revisit this thread in another 20 months and lets see if we are any better off then... Carry on!
The radios will never work correctly I don't care what anybody sais. I have given up on the issue and have chalked it up to no one gives a crap. As far as the phones the new new one I got is just as bad the new old one I just turned in. Can't send a text message and still can't d.c. My suggestion is scrap these stupid phones and the hell with the direct connent. I would prefer to speak to someone on the cell rather than the dopey d.c. Get us some decent old fashion cell's without d.c. and things should be just fine.
Oh, I can hear you if I stand in certain places, it's just that I cant understand a darn thing because everyone sounds like Mumbles the clown! From what I hear, even the Admin. is pissed about the phones! Hope the contract for Sprint is short lived Because the SO got hosed for sure!

Well if the admin is pissed about the phones then you can rest easy that the problem will be fixed and fixed quickly.
Too bad they are not pissed about the radio problems!!
And I concur about communications needing a new chain of command! Maybe then there would be more dispatchers than supervisors. Every time you go in there there are 15+ supervisors to just 4 persons on phones. The whole balcony needs to get their butts out of their offices and walk down the stairs to help answer phones and dispatch on the radio.
We need another buy-out and purge the communications bureau!!
It is better to be silent and thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt. Unfortunately it is to late for you girls. You are doing notheing but spreading out an out lies and you have no idea what you are talking about. By the way I am not fan of all of communications burea management but some are trying. Quit crying NANCY
I beg to differ with you and stand firmly behind my post!! I am however always open to another view so please share with me who in management are
Trying" and exactly what are they trying... I'm all ears...
The radios are crap, the phones are crap, were working at critical stall levels and I think Lou’s is hoping we forget we purchased guns. How long has it been since we ordered those damn guns? Have they harvested the metal from the earth to make them yet? WTF over
Update: How many times do you have to enter a CORRECT math equation before this stupid @$$ thing will post?
Curious first lets make it clear I am not communications management. Instead of me telling you who from managment does care if you know anyone in communications ask them - Who comes in in the middle of the night to talk to night shift - who asks us our opinion and actually listtens, who has created ways for information to flow from bottom to top and top to bottom. Who has had the supervisors attending workshops on the issues we have in communications, who got us more floor positions than we had before. By the way we are down to 8 supervisors, morale is on the rise, we have 6 new hires and if my understanding is correct there are no problems with the radios it is the radio system. Once you ask these questions you will find out who cares about us.
