Anyone listen to Erath County? I see they have a license modification with new locations and one new frequency pair.
I spent most of the day down in Stephens County (borders Erath on the north) a couple of weeks ago. I had all frequencies listed for the county, as well as cities, programmed in my TRX-1, including these newest ones). That was just after this license was issued. Very little to note on the newer licensed frequencies, nor, for that matter, on the existing ones. I had the TRX-1 set up to record any activity it heard, regardless of mode.
Well, there are zero, none, nada, public safety related trunked licenses in Erath County. But that did not make them blink a few years ago when they upgraded to P25 conventional without being licensed.Word on the street is that they've upgraded to a fancypants 3 site, 3 channel mixed-mode simulcast.
Well, apparently Stephenville is going with L3-Harris for something. The county records give no details other than a nebulous reference to Motorola.I never said anything about trunking. I said a mixed-mode simulcast. VHF conventional, Motorola hardware.
