A new public safety communication platform is a M/A-COM system
provided through TransCore, Inc., based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The
system is tightly integrated into the CONXX backbone and delivers improved
coverage in areas where public safety communications has been a
longstanding problem. The new mobility capability can turn any public
safety vehicle into a moving office, allowing officers and first responders
to spend more time in the community.

Rumor had it that a municipal wireless network was going in place in cambria county.

Accross any IP infrastructure network VO-IP telephony, LMR Radio, and DAta can be moved.
A quick check of http://www.conxx.net/ shows that it is an ip backbone on a wireless platform for data (of course you can move VOIP telephony, and LMR as well as data accross a data network with the proper equipment).

As far as the RF side I believe a new UHF radio network was installed on analog/narrowbanded FM. What that means is non narrowbanded equipment such as scanners may pickup more than just the sole channel trying to be monitored.

Shouldn't affect the scanner listeners in the area. (Source http://www.radioreference.com/forums/showthread.php?t=94824)

I am sure one of the locals from Cambria will pipe in sometime today.
