Abstract

When a radio system dispatcher desires to monitor a particular receiver in an existing voting system, they must "force vote" the desired receiver. This overrides the normal voting process and selects that receiver regardless of its signal quality. In some cases, like troubleshooting, this may be useful. However, during normal operation it would be more desirable to monitor a particular receiver without disturbing the voting process.

TRANSPARENT MONITOR FUNCTION FOR RECEIVER VOTING SYSTEMS

by Douglas W Eaton

  When a radio system dispatcher desires to monitor a particular receiver in an existing voting system, they must "force vote" the desired receiver. This overrides the normal voting process and selects that receiver regardless of its signal quality. In some cases, like troubleshooting, this may be useful. However, during normal operation it would be more desirable to monitor a particular receiver without disturbing the voting process.

  As an example: An accident has occurred and the dispatcher wants to monitor the activity close to the accident while still monitoring normal system activity.

The operator simply does a "Transparent

Monitor" on the closest site and disables the site by removing it from the voting process. This "Transparent Monitor" audio could be mixed with the normal console audio or even routed via a separate wireline.

  This is being implemented by creating a separate audio bus that any receiver's audio can be gated to. This audio bus can be mixed with normal Console audio or even routed to separate wireline.

  The following diagrams give pictorial represen- tation of the difference between the Force Vote and the Transparent Monitor.
