All non Campus Safety users are expected to use Channel 2 (Maintenance) for normal day to day communications. You may change to channel 1 to contact the Safety Desk or a Safety officer, then return to Channel 2.

Bypass channel is only to be used in an emergency situation where both repeaters have failed. It will provide users direct unit to unit communication without the use of a repeater. Usable range and reliability will be greatly reduced.

Channel 1 is the emergency channel! All emergency traffic should use Channel 1.

Please note that "Base" will not monitor Channel 2! If you need to contact "Base", change to Channel 1!
