Statewide Talkgroups

Statewide tactical talkgroups are labeled "STACx", where "x" currently is 1-8. The first talkgroup is known as SCALL1 this talkgroup is pushed out on every site on the system, so when a user keys up SCALL1 is transmitted out on every tower in the state. These talkgroups allow communications between users regardless of where they are located in the State of Wisconsin, as long as system access is available.

Regional Talkgroups

Regional tactical talkgroups are labeled "RCALLx1" through RTACx4", where "x" is a numeric designation for the Department of Military Affairs, Division of Emergency Management (i.e. Wisconsin Emergency Management, WEM) region that they are located in. These talkgroups will only be available to users in roughly the same geographic area as their county boundaries, as dictated by tower locations.

Like SCALL1 the RCALLs are pushed out on every tower int eh region they are assigned to, allowing users to scan the channel effectively.

  • Southwest Region
