Default KU Medical Center Trunked System

I received a submission that says the KU Medical Center analog trunked system (https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=370) has gone dark and may have been replaced by a digital system.

Can anyone confirm this and if so, what frequencies they are using?

Or if they have migrated to another system?


Thanks,

Might be this if they didn't move to KSICS.

Last I heard is that they were in the process of transitioning over to a new Phase II P25 system independent of KSICS. No firm switchover date was given.

That's a separate NEXEDGE system used by the University (Nursing school, etc). PD and other public safety ops won't be using it.

I believe they are going to 800 Digital P25. They bought a bunch of Tait Radios for the system
In talking to their folks over there they were going to have a link to KSICS but it is not going to be on KSICS.

They have their own, independent P25 system. I do not know the freqs but I can confirm it is now operational.

If that's the case I wouldn't pickup anything from here. I watched activity on the KCK MARRS tower for about 45 minutes and no new talkgroups popped up.

It seems odd that nothing regarding the new digital system has appeared in the FCC database.

That probably means they are either using frequencies on some existing license or non site-based 700 MHz State License frequencies.

New system details have been posted. Same frequencies as before however it is now a 2 site simulcast system with lower antennas to better penetrate the buildings.
