This means also then that Auraria Campus has changed?

So Gun Barrel, Sunset and now Adams Simulcast and Auraria.
Anyone care to hazard a guess which site is next?
Will they only be changing CC freqs on the 700 sites? And if so - why?

Inquiring minds want to know...:lol:

It's rather simple actually

As mentioned in another thread. The state has been operating with a blanket (any freq in that range) 700 MHz license for some time. In recent weeks the FCC has issued (site specific) permanent frequency assignment licenses.

In other words all the 700 MHz frequencies used on DTRS up until this point were temporary and the sites are being retuned to their permanent frequency assignments.

Think of it as rebanding.

Good, so I should be able to lock these in as the control channels and throw away the key!!!!

What's with "Thornton Hilltop Park"? Are those just the names you've assigned in your pro96com?

It's really the name of the Park it's in. Hiltop Park..... Check it out sometime. Take the street to the North of the King Soopers at 136th/Colorado. Looks like your going up a private drive to the huge house up on the hill, but the road splits and heads up to Hilltop Park. Pretty cool park with a great view and a fake tree with the site.

The name "site with a tower that used to look like a big fake evergreen tree" was already taken.

Yeah you can name them anything you want in the software. Trying to cram all three names for the site name might possibly run out of room in the site display field.

Unless there was some additional data in the CC there's no way the software can determine which site has the dominant signal you are receiving.

How about just naming it Adams Simulcast? (or is that just me being a simpleton again?)

A bit OT here but I'm glad you mentioned this...

Thornton Civic Center / 140th @ Colorado / Third site? Has anyone ever actually confirmed the site locations (or current number of sites for that matter?)

I remember discussion of Brighton but also the Water Tanks at 136th just west of Colorado. I'm also am wondering about the Water Tanks at 112th @ I-25 as well...
