They can't use the existing GRN or VHF's as the Vic & SA radio systems aren't compatible.

We had big issues with this at the Eden Valley fire with the NSW crews. Had to end up communicating via general UHF channels.

Good on them for sorting that one out! Wonders whether it is just the SE that are getting them or all border brigades (eg Pinnaroo).

No different to the comms problems between CFS & SES who use the same GRN network but with different allocated frequencies/chipsets...... Been struggling to get that one fixed on a local level for years and finally M/B SES have had the CFS frequencies opened up on their GRN.

All the SES  GRB radios we have/I've used can access the full range of CFS/MFS talkgroups as well as the MA talkgoups, what needs to be changed is the policy for talking on Comms between agency's, especially SES to MFS.

The VHFs are not completely incompatible with each other. Whilst they don't share the same channel numbers, some channels share the same transmit AND recieve frequencies. We discovered this at Bangor. For future reference playing with the radios for 5 minutes will save days of heart ache. Don't quote me but RFS channel 12 and CFS channel 5 comes to mind as able to talk to eachother. I've had a few beers since then so I could be wrong

There is a channel mapping document out there that lists what aligns to what. I would assume it can be requested from the comms guys in State if needed.

14:38:10 15-12-14 ADVISED BY REGION LYNDOCH NOW SET FOR DUAL RESPONSE WITH WILLIAMSTOWN 24P/RESCUE. IMPORTANT READ PAGER MESSAGES RESPOND ONLY RCR INCIDENTS. - CFS Lyndoch Info

Are Williamston having crewing difficulties? If so, good to see a common sense approach. Don't know about the bit about having to receive all response messages associated with Williamstown 24P R - would be quite annoying.

Saw a page a couple of days ago from Lyndoch saying they had some Holmatro gear on loan.

Think that page was regarding servicing. They have had Holmatro Rapid Intervention kit for many years.

I lose track of who has gear, few brigades around who don't seem to have gear according to SACAD.
