I keep hearing different dates for roll out. It is about time to replace the legacy system. Now only if Ozaukee Co gets rid of theirs.

It won't be OpenSky. OpenSky isn't a Motorola product. Harris builds those systems.

Sarcasm missed...

I don't have any factual information on it, but if I had to make a guess, it's going to be a Motorola's APCO-25 digital system (Marketed ASTRO-25), going pretty much the same way as Washington County and the State.

If anyone has anything on actual specs...would be great

This system was discussed in the Wisconsin forum last year when Waukesha County was moving forward with their half, with a link provided to their information for vendors. But alas, go to https://purchasing.waukeshacounty.gov/bids_list.aspx, under archive, scroll down to #1332. Tells all.
