Burnett County is moving to a new radio system, target date is Oct 1. (They are still Wideband and their FCC exemption expires Sept 24th).

Sounds like Law 1 won't change, Existing Fire channel will be a page only channel and they will be adding numerous additional channels for both Fire and Law.

They were testing the paging system Thursday night and instead of doing each tower, they did one test on the new system and it sounded pretty good...but some departments had some issues receiving the pages.

Sounds like a system of Voters over there now.

No. Law 1 will be analog. They are adding a Law 2 that will be mixed mode. No trunking, all conventional.

Burnett has switched over fully as of 9/30. Couple spotty areas of coverage and a lot of complaining, but they are on.

So for the time being my old analog radios will still work correct? I live in Polk County and am interested in Burnett, Polk and Chisago in MN. Also what is the best aircraft freq I seem to have a major block when trying to listen to them.
Thanks
Jim

Yes, your analog radios will work still except for hearing their digital Law 2 channel.

What is this Law 2 or should I say is there a scanner available as I would imagine Burnett will use this new freq a lot.
thanks
Jim
Law 2 is going to be used as an overflow or alternate channel for the SO. I haven't heard any traffic on it yet. Yes, any P25 Digital scanner will pick it up.
