LAFD Battalion Vehicle, 7 XTL5000

Postby dsheli » Mon Nov 22, 2010 4:00 pm

Does anyone have any close up pictures of LA County's Battalion vehicles? I would love to see a close up of the 7 XTL5000 I see mounted in the back. Right now I count 11 antennas on the top of the roof.

I'll try to get pics of our interop vehicle, it has way more than 7.....
Kilgore: Smell that? You smell that?
Lance: What?
Kilgore: Napalm, son. Nothing in the world smells like that.
Kilgore: I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end...

That's just for the battalion chief... not for interop... they have command units for that...

We are currently building one that has 10 antennas on the roof. 3 UHF, 1 VHF, 1 800, 1 UHF band VRM, 1 GPS, 1 TV Tuner antenna and two spares.

Just finished one with the same amount of antennas but one additional radio

Nothing like turning a brand new vehicle into Swiss cheese with all of the holes!!!

Hadn't seen that video before, thanks for posting. Nice to see someone else uses chief's aides.
