Documentation Sub-page for Template:Infobox TRS MultiCounty

Scope of Use

Purpose

  • This template presents a standardized index with information describing a TRS that covers multiple counties.


Directly Invoked By

  • TRSs that cover multiple counties


Parameters

  • Many of these parameters may be filled in with data from the database or other wiki pages, as shown.
    • SysName - The name of the TRS being documented
    • Flavor - The type of the TRS being documented. Use the terminology found in the Glossary whenever possible. See the notes below
    • SysID - The system ID of the TRS, if known. Blanks are acceptable if not known
    • WACN - The Wide Area Communications ID, if known. Blanks are acceptable if it's not.
    • CTone - The connect tone needed for an actual user to access this system. It's not needed for scanners. Blanks are acceptable if not known
    • NAC - If this is a Project 25 system, the Network Access Code (NAC) for an actual user to access this system. It's not needed for scanners. Blanks are acceptable if not known
    • Ccode - If this TRS is a MOTOTRBO type, and the DMR color code is known, place it here. See the notes below for further information. Blanks are acceptable if not known
    • RAN - If this TRS is a NXDN type, and the RAN is known, place it here. Blanks are acceptable if not known
    • Band - Generic description of the band this TRS uses; examples like 'VHF', 'UHF', '700 Mhz' are fine. If there is more than one band, seperate them with a '/'
    • OwnerTy - Who owns this TRS? If not known, it can be left blank. You can also use Public or Private to describe its ownership type
    • City - Self Explanatory. Various can be placed here. See the notes below
    • County - If possible, when there's only 1 or 2, insert them here. If there are more than that, put Various
    • State - The name of the state, first letter capitalized
    • fstate - The name of the state forum where this TRS can be discussed. Note that some names are hyphenated (as shown in the example below) and is NOT capitalized
    • sid - The SID can be found as a token in the last part of the URL for this TRS in the database.


Notes
  • Not all of these tokens are required, but every effort should be made to fill them in. Many can be left blank, and it will not cause the template to fail
  • These items should be installed, when needed, in a new section to be called 'Related Links' or 'Related Pages'. Templates mentioned here can all be found on the Templates-List: General Use Only page
    • If the TRS is of a type that can't be trunked or scanned, a warning to that effect is required. Use the Tracker-Related templates
    • If the TRS is a MOTOTRBO type, and uses multiple color codes, put See DMR Bandplan in the DMR Color Code field. You must then supply a link to an article with the corrected bandplan that shows each color code by frequency (when known). The Table Trbosys template is designed for this purpose.
    • This template has a built in function to call the database function to map individual sites using the FCC data. Using other templates (such as Callsign) are not needed.

Examples

  • The horizontal lines below separate examples for clarity and do not appear when template is invoked.
