im just curious as to when the 9600 baud is going to happen to the state trunked system ?

one other question is 39.100 and 39.500 still being used in some counties in the state.. ?

i know Ree Heights has 39.100 but is there any other user on that freq. ?

9600 baud upgrade

As of right now... The EARLIEST the state would be doing the upgrade would be 2017. But by 2017, the technology that the state would be upgrading to would be old and outdated...so what we are much more likely to see is not an upgrade to 9600, but an upgrade to what ever the dominant radio technology of the time is. The reason that the state is not upgrading to 9600 is simply the cost. Not only do they have to update all the repeater sites and etc, most radios in the state would need to be worked on. The state simply doesn't currently have the money to do half the projects they would like to, let alone upgrade everything
