Yes, I have noticed. I was just going to get on here and ask if anyone knew why they are on the old system so often, lol. They are on it again today, and have been for several days. Sang county and state are still on starcom, and have been. So its obviously just a springfield pd thing.

Curious if they actually are switching radios or if they have both systems in their new radios. I was there Saturday and fire was on the old system while PD was on Starcom21.

As of today they are still on analog. Just FYI alot of officers didnt like the digital radios so they might be switching back over to analog and patch it over to Starcom 21 as they did last week.

ah, ic. Well I have noticed some probs with the digital system. For one thing, it seems that during high usage, or during an incident when there are several officers talking at once, there is ALOT of garble and dispatch asking for people to "repeat" and "several cars at once" type of thing going on. It has to be frustrating at the least, and possibly life threatening at the worst case scenario.

Default Crap!

That is what Springfield Officers have told me. They where not sure about tower issues so much as portable issues. Moto told them they need to upgrade their portables for god knows how much and they would not have as many problems. Also where told water on the shoulder mics renders them useless.

Well, the city appears to be broke, (and I think they are) so who knows how long it will take to get them upgraded. There are probably alot of them that have gotten wet here lately, with thunderstorms and floods going on darn near every day. The day of the great flood, dispatch kept telling them to shake the water out of their mikes, they were unreadable.

Ok, where did they go? I have been listening for over an hour and a half, and no spfld. pd. They are not on starcom, nor are they on the old analog system. I can hear the county and state perfectly fine. Where'd they go?

Thanks very much. I had the 852.85, but not 853.375. I have 851.925 and 851.975 for some reason.
