Default Ulster County Fire system upgrades

Ulster County is presently researching a countywide upgrade for fire services. Anyone have anything on this other than rumors. 450 and 800 mHz systems have been discussed however, but as far as I know at this time nothing has been set in stone.

Thanks for that info . I saw that a while back. I was wondering if things had moved on a bit.
Something to keep an eye open for in the future.

Well hopefully they'll stay far away from Big Red if they want a system that works

So far nothing is etched in stone. Chances are they are going to pressure some of the local agencies who have vacated their VHF high band frequencies to relinquish their licenses and switch to VHF high if they can get enough free channels that won't interfere with neighboring counties. This is what they would LIKE to do, ideally (this comes from my FD chief, who is also an Ulster Cty. dispatcher). Whether this is more than a pipe dream remains to be seen. And of course, just about every small fire company is screaming bloody murder about the cost of replacing their radio equipment (I've already told my chief about licensing low band frequencies we're already using for the handhelds and just putting cross-band repeaters in the trucks, thus preventing us from having to buy all new handhelds as well as the radios in the trucks and the chief's car, and saving us a ton of money... Why more departments don't think of that, I don't know).
