v33#4 Victorian CFA acknowledge digital network failure, revert to analogueIn this edition - Similar to the rollout of the GWN (digital radio network) in Queensland some years ago, a digital network is currently being rolled out across Victoria for the MFB and the CFA. In January 2019, it was identified that a lack of coverage inside many buildings and lack of coverage in certain open areas was affecting digital radio communications and therefore putting the safety of firefighters at risk.
v33#3 Radios / Communications Taskforce set up in response to UFUQ survey into GWN / Radio problemsIn this edition - As I reported to you in early December 2018, your union presented the results of a survey of UFUQ members working in the GWN network area to Commissioner Carroll. I thank the Commissioner for promptly establishing a 'Radio / Communications Taskforce' once the voices of those affected were reported to her.
