Looks like they've finally got some frequencies to use now (or at least their in the process of being licensed).

I noticed compared to their current VHF conventional simulcast (KDC300) they're not reusing many of their current sites. I also don't see any of the cities 4 sites licensed either. Already starting to look like they're putting a lot of extra work in. I'll be interested to plot these tonight after work and see what to expect.

Thanks for the post Ron.

VHF will be patched to 700 for a very long time until funding can get radios to all departments. All is not lost yet.

Right, but patches will stay in place for a while for mutual aid purposes and to keep the volunteers in the loop.

Hell, the Char-Meck TRS is close to 30 years old and county fire still has VHF linked in with it. Plus they'll still need analog conventional to handle QuickCall II tones.
