Thanks for the heads up, Tom

A six frequency 700MHz system for Midlothian? Even though it appears that Red Oak is also participating, that seems like overkill for those two relatively small towns.

What about an interconnect with Fort Worth/Johnson County? Could Ellis be considering becoming part of that system? It sure is a lot of talk paths for such a little town?

That's my thinking as well. While I do see two sites in red Oak, so possibly they are joining with Midlothian, six frequencies for those two towns, which if combined, have less population than Mansfield, seems overbuilt. Mansfield only has 5 on it's FWRRS layer.

Will be part of the Fort Worth Regional Radio System. New tower has already been erected at FS3 on Tower Rd.

Quoted from the top article, the Midlothian Police Chief "Smith noted that the 700 MHZ band is a clear channel band designated by the Federal Communication Commission several years ago to be used strictly as a public safety frequency. Ellis and neighboring counties have already moved to the higher band to improve communications."

I don't see where Ellis County is using 700 MHz. What's he talking about?

No idea where he's coming up with the "Ellis and other counties.........." statement. Kaufman does have their new, but so far lightly used, 700MHz system, and there is some traffic on the Dallas 700MHzsystem. But the closest any Ellis County agency is to that band is the 800MHz band channels used conventionally by Waxahachie.

I have not seen any traffic on the site yet, just the single CC channel.
