So theoretically if it was setup correctly, Motorola APX radios could be used on this system.

I have NO doubt that MOTOROLA WILL WORK ON A HARRIS OR TAIT SYSTEM but the other way around may not be true. Motorola has a check box in there radio cps call Motorola proprietary features. so that only motorola radios work on a motorola system

This thread is going a bit off topic but system administrators are becoming wise to Motorola's tricks. They are forcing Motorola to open these systems up.

The new northern Kentucky system is a Motorola build but they were told from the beginning that the system must allow more than just Motorola subscriber units, they have Motorola, Harris, Kenwood and Tait radios operating on the system right now.

This is about having smart system managers who are not in Motorola's pocket.

Agreed. Update, UK has made the final choice to sell its North Tower core. Scott County does not want to sell their second core, Madison will have to buy a new one more than likely. Waiting on more meetings from the courts.

From the Scott County Fiscal Court this morning,
All county agencies spoke on the agreement that this system would better Interopablilty and communications between agencies and counties and spoke to the court that they are in favor. Resolution 20-12 was read and approved and now the project will move forward.

Update from this morning's Madison County Fiscal Court meeting.
A new ordinance has been readopted as Georgetown/Scott County requested that the ordinance contained information what each entity would be providing for the BRRN as that's what the dividends would provide. 27% Madison County, 26% University of Kentucky, and a combined 8% for Georgetown/Scott County.

Georgetown has filed for 4 additional frequencies for all 6 sites. I can say now that on the Georgetown system we don't even use half of our pairs. Im sure this is for the new system as a way to allow all sites to carry Madison County and UK traffic while still having enough voice and data channels for us. This would add 8 additional channels.

2nd Reading was done this morning in the Madison County Fiscal Court and it passed. Georgetown's filing is still in the pending phase as of tonight. Some new radios have been seen on the Georgetown System but no one has started linking yet.
