Dead Spots, dead spots, rolly polly dead spots...
Good Morning !
Boy, I wish I could write everyday however I just can’t anymore. There is SO MUCH WRONG with the Westmoreland County Department of Emergency Management’s Radio Cyst-Em that I should be writing from Sun up to Sun Down ! Or would that be from Tower Up to Tower Down.
From what I understand from my 911 inside sources, 33.52 Mhz Low Band Fire Backup and Pager / Siren Dispatch Frequency at Bear Caves (their main tower) is still OUT OF ORDER, DOWN, BROKEN, BEFUNGLED, or whatever else you want to call a broken down tower site.
FUBAR is another good term !
It has been out of service for a month or so, give or take a repairman ! UNBELIEVABLE. Someone has to hold Richard Matason or Mark Brammell responsible but who ? The commissioners ? Ha, what a friggin’ joke !
With that said I have a “GUEST BLAH-G” coming from a faithful reader soon. He said that “someone beside me” has to do some speaking up so he is in the process of writing the Guest Blah-g which I will post when it’s received, uncut !
You would think that things would be getting better after a year of testing and playing around with the lives of our FIRST RESPONDERS and the CITIZENS of Westmoreland County (WC). But they aren’t.
I posted several new audio files on my website that YOU should listen to. Seems we have EVEN MORE DEAD SPOTS than we did a year ago ! I just finished another audio file and it’s still in the .WAV format, I will reduce it to a an .MP3 later on Sunday and post it with the other new ones already there.
Seems that 75% of all the audio files posted now show one thing very clearly. DEAD SPOTS ! They are increasing in numbers which leads to Missed Calls… information being “guessed at” because 911 can’t hear the cars out in the field and the cars out in the field can’t hear 911. What good is a radio system (ops… Cyst-Em) if cops, EMS and firemen can’t hear and vista vergo.
I had made a CHALLENGE to the WC Commissioners to have a “Talk Out” and as of this date none of them have contacted me. What Chickens !!
The “Talk Out” Challenge would have brought residents from WC together with members of the fire, medical and law enforcement as well as representatives from the commissioners, 911 Emergency Manglement, Radio Maintenance and ME. About 30 people in all in a BIG room with the Media present.
That way we can talk about the system and I BET everyone would walk away from this event with a better understanding of how the 800 Mega Hurts Cyst-Em is suppose to work and WHY IT DOESN’T.
Read my last Blah-g for more information !
WINNER OF THE “Blah-ger Tip of the Month Contest” has been delayed by a few days… usually the Boogerette pulls the winning name from the magic PA Lottery Hat but seems that she is no where to be found anymore.
Yes, the Boogerette left the Booger Blah-ger.
I am alone, single, ONE, UNO, 3 Dog Night type deal (sob). So I guess I’ll have to pull the winners name myself unless some sweet thing wishes to volunteer to come to Blah-ger Central and help me do it. Email me should you wish to see how this sacred contest selection process works. Males need not apply. firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone have answers to the following questions ?
Who is Medic 940 ?
How many new 800 Mhz radios does Mutual Aid Ambulance Service have total ? I have logged probably 20 today alone on 800 Megga Hurts, I’m thinking they have around 75 at this point. Who bought them, DHS, the Tax Payers or MAAS ?
How is it that Mutual Aid Ambulance Service runs Van Pickups on the Emergency Frequencies when Richard Matason clearly has on the “official website” that 800 Mhz is only to be used for emergency information now. Van Transfers are NOT emergencies.
How much does Richard Matason make a year to do nothing as I don't see him doing anything that would benefit the county ?
How much does Mark Brammell make a year to confuse things ?
How much does “my 911 Supervisor Informer” get paid to straighten things up ?
Why is it that the Booger Blah-ger is all alone. Not only in life but in my stance against having this 800 Meggy Hurts Cyst-Em still in operation while Motoroldla gets away with selling crappy equipment to our County and the County Commissioners do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about it.
Why, why, why ???
Ok, I’m done for now. Keep checking the audio clips section for new updates as I have tons of audio to go through and that’s what I’ve been doing. Why else would the Boogerette have left me ? Can't be because of my looks, geee I'm good looking, not like 911 Management. Anyhow, keep those tips and comments coming… without something to write about I usually don’t.
God save the Queen, cheerio !
