I just heard local dispatchers letting units know that the Peach Ridge MARCS tower in Athens, Ohio (Athens County) will be going in and out of service today while updates are done to the tower. Just and FYI for people in the area. Anyone know what type of updates they are doing? We already have P25. Maybe I will get better reception after the update :)

They were fixing the emergency power generators that were installed incorrectly. Peach Ridge is already P25 but none of the other Athens Country MARCS sites have been switched over. The WOUB-TV tower site is supposed to be upgraded to P25 very soon.
