"Mille Lacs County chose the 800 MHz option. Sheriff Brent Lindgren and Fjerstad explained last week that narrowing the band width would have been more costly because of the many towers that would have to be installed across the county. Those repeater towers would eventually have to be about 6.3 miles apart to be effective in the much narrower VHS band width, Fjerstad and Lindgren agreed."
