Cool SCHUYL CO UPGRADE DELAYED

Testing on the $16 million upgrades to Schuylkill County's public safety communications network has pushed the upgrade project completion date back about six months.

Scott Krater, county communications director, told the county commissioners after a work session Wednesday that installation of a security system and coverage testing has delayed the project

Those licenses appear to be for Berks County's new 700 mHZ system. From the article it sounds like Schuylkill County is narrowbanding on their existing VHF frequencies (at least for the Police side - don't know what they're doing with the fire side since they're on low band). Looks like Berks has a tower or two in the neighboring county to cover fringe areas.
