Last week I noticed that radio service was in the county fixing some of the problems as far as remote siren controls and quality and volume of voice communications....The next day I noticed no traffic during the day shift, but it returned at shift change. I suspect that they were toying with the new system after hearing what I heard last night.....I heard an officer ask what I believe to a county officer if he could switch over to Davis digital frequency. After about 5 minutes radio traffic returned to the normal frequencies....It is my guess that Davis and Murray county are digitally capable....I also noticed during the last few days that the different departments ( PD, Fire, and EMS) were having difficulty communcating with eachother while responding to various traffic problems due to the weather.....I checked the database last evening and saw no changes......Just a heads up to anyone interested.

The OKWIN P25 system has a couple of sites down there. It wouldn't surprise me if they will move over to it. I'd be looking for 800mhz antennas on the cars.

I am aware of the OKWIN changes for OHP etc. in this area, as I 1st reported losing the voice communications here in December.

I also am aware of the part22 frequencies, as I tracked that information down and posted it here as well.

The antennas on the cars are still the long ones with no 800 mhz. visible on the outside of the vehicles. That doesn't neccesarily mean that they are not using handhelds to communicate prior to the switch over. It is also possible that they were just "playing around" or used the improper terminology.

I appreciate your input.
