I am a technician for a school district. The district recently purchased some DTR700 to add to our current fleet of DTR650. However, with the new model, we cannot program the radios to work the same as without the DTR700.
Currently the 650s are setup with private groups. So an administrator not in the custodial group can call all three custodians without being in that group.
However, with the 700s, I am finding out this isn’t possible. Plus, it also won’t call a radio if the radio that is calling doesn’t have the same channel pulled up in the scroll list. This is a huge problem for us as it can be a safety hazard to not be able to reach certain contacts.
This is our flow chart. Front Office should be able to call custodians without being in the group. Because if Float 2 calls custodians next, Front Office does not need to hear it.
