Mid and West Wales FIRE Strange callsigns

Post by skw » 18 Jun 2008, 17:01

Okay after listening for a couple of hours I've noticed that there are differant callsigns coming through to control.

Like 31 Pappa 1 and Tango 1 and like Romeo 1.

ALSO When the Control says out it would normally say WB out but today they are saying WM and sometimes WB out.

What's happening?
Very Strange.

They have changed callsigns, This is a national switch so in event of a major incident other birgades if on the job callsigns wont conflict.

The new callsigns are in the format area/station/appliance/type (e.g 4/5/papa/1).

Great, what about my local unit, Whiskey 41. Would that relate in any way to the new call sign or are every one totally differant/new?
