I can not find anywhere that Geauga County has rebanded but lately all of the sheriff's frequencies appear abandoned. Anyone have any info about any frequency changes? The freq's listed in the Radio Reference Database seem to still be the old ones.
Why do rebandings occur anyway? To improve reception and/or eliminate communication bottlenecks? Lake County recently rebanded, and if I recall correctly, they're actually using less channels now, which seems a bit odd to me.Nothing has changed on the 800 MHz system -- yet.
All of the subscriber radios have been reprogrammed for rebanding and a drive test to record coverage is next on the schedule. Infrastructure retuning is scheduled for January.
