I'm curious. How many conversations are typically available on a single cell tower/site? My understanding is that in rural Alberta there might be as few as10 available conversations/frequencies/channels/whatever you want to call them.
It is my understanding that Telus in Alberta has several emergency cell sites on a truck available for special events and disasters.1) How would they hook back into the main network? Microwave to a nearby point where they can tap into the phone network? Or do they place it right next to some point where they can tap in?
2) How do they coordinate frequencies? That's gotta be a pain given adjacent cell sites. Or are there some cell frequencies set aside specifically for these emergency trucks?
