Default Michigan system article

For some reason, I can post in any forum except Community/Breaking News. So I'm posting this here. If Thunderbolt wants to move it, feel free.

Default Michigan PS radio

There are enough cities and county systems around me with conventional radios that I bought a scanner and dedicated it to analog VHF/UHF use in SE Michigan. Yes, they probably have "black boxes" that tie them to the statewide system, but that is not really interoperability. I talked to a councilman in one city, and their reason was the yearly per mike cost of the MPSCS radios. They moved to a UHF NXDEN system with a patch to the state. I was also told that the salesman told them they had to go digital due to the new rules, so Motorola is not the only one bending the truth in spreading the expensive changes.

If you take a look at the forum description or the stickied thread at the top of that forum, you'll understand why you can't post there.

Once you read the stickied thread, you'll also understand why your message can't be moved there.

Sorry but I don't accept PM's. Please use email instead.
