Hi, I am a long time scanner/radio guy from the Philly area. I am looking for imput from folks in Michigan regarding any known issues with the MPSCS. Here in PA there are plans in the works to replace thier statewide OpenSky system with a P25 statewide system. The discussion here in PA had me wondering how successful the MPSCS system has been? I was recently out in Detroit for a few days and was monitoring several agencies on the system. My opinion was the system was quite clear and had a good signal. Detroit Fire was receivable down by the airport on a portable radio. So the question is have there been any major issues recently like tower sites going down, controller crashes, etc? All I've been able to find is an article from 2013 about DPD losing comms that sounded more like a dispatch console link issue than a system issue. Thoughts?
