Introduction to the new Sepura Radio System
The Sepura Radio system is a radio that is used by the British Emergency Services and allows encrypted transmissions so that the general public cannot listen into radio transmissions from a general receiver.
Below is a comprehensive list of the channels available to us, and their operational usage.
Ops 1 is the general radio channel used on the server, unless you’re on an Organised Patrol or have been instructured by a Sergeant or above to move channel, you must use this.
This is where it all happens, urgent requests for back-up, communication when a panic button is pressed and general communications from Control to units.
*Note, to change channels you can either use your mouse cursor to use the arrow keys on the radio itself or use the keyboard shortcuts that will are in tables at the top of this document
Incident 1, Incident 2, Incident 3
(Inc1, Inc2, Inc3)
The Incident channels are integral to the smooth running of the server, these are only to be used when an incident is declared on the server. This could be a pursuit, call for help, officer down or panic button activation. To use any of these channels you need authorisation from a Sergeant or above, if any of the staff team are unavailable you are able to utilise these at your discretion.
Ops 1, Int-Ops and other designated division channels)
Multiple channels are used when there is an Organised Patrol on the server. These channels will be allocated to a certain division within the server when the patrol starts, you MUST use the channel assigned to you when taking part in the Patrol/Operation.
Other times where channels are used could be when planned raids, planned operations or declared incidents occur.
Pursuit channels are used after authorisation is granted for a pursuit to continue. Once all allocated units are attached to the pursuit, Control or the officer initiating the pursuit can request for this to be moved to another channel. This authorisation is granted from Control, if active, or from SGT+. If there are no SGT+ or Control active, you can move the pursuit to another channel at your discretion.
