Should be the "Western Counties Regional Radio System", which will be part of GATRRS.I just got word from the Johnson City police that Blanco County is switching systems. He would not say what they were going to. I've been trying to research but can't find anything. Anybody have any clues?
Yes, over the years there has been alot of drama with fire/ems. We have both north and south Vol. fire/EMS. The South end is very protective of maintaining its service area from the other Vol services.. We also now have the Round Mountain fire dept. starting to become very protective of their area. I would not be surprised if they all demanded their own little sytem within the system. I have contacted several people that work the Johnson City fire dept. They are scheduled to be at the fire house tomorrow and will let me know what they can.For what it's worth, I know the radios have been programmed. Haven't cut over to them yet. There will be a lot of new talk groups. For those of you who monitor Blanco County, for the first time in my memory, fire/EMS and law enforcement will be on separate talk groups.
