Voice Communication

These are calls made between one radio user and another. In most instances all these calls would be within the same fleet.

Should calls be required to be made between fleets, additional interfleet and interprefix codes will have to be entered.

When the call is made, an indication of the availability of the called party is given i.e. busy, available or not available.

The length of the call will be limited to 90 seconds as set by the system manager. If you have not completed your message and the call clears, simply reinitiate the call and continue for another 90 seconds.

A feature of the Network is the capability to set up priority calls.

This feature is implemented at an additional monthly charge as well as a charge per call.

Precedence is given to a caller with enabled priority call set-up to be allocated the first available channel and not stay in the queue for the next available channel, i.e. the call is moved to the top of the queue.

Another feature of the Network is the enabling of emergency calls to selected users.

This feature is implemented at an additional monthly charge as well as a charge per call.

An emergency enabled user will be given preferential treatment by having a channel allocated to him which is still in use on a high site with the longest timeslot user being knocked off the channel.

As a special feature, PABX (Public Area Branch Exchange) interconnect to customers is available.

Trunked radios can connect to a cellphone- or telephone network and vice versa through the PSTN (Public Switch Telephone Network.)

The call timer for PSTN and PABX is 180 seconds. There is an additional cost that is charged per call.
