Training is offered to subscriber departments during the radio service implementation process.
Typically, a department uses a main "talk group" and a few auxiliary "talk group(s)" that are set up specifically for their department's communications. Additionally, most radio handsets are configured to allow communications between campus service departments, such as UCDHS, Facilities, TAPS, and Fleet Services. Communications Resources' specialists work with your department to ensure that the functionality you require is built in to your radio service configuration. Each department's configuration will vary depending on requirements and the radio systems configuration constraints.
Used Radios - Things to know:
