In summary that says.. For County That Says, We're going to NexEDGE, You will hear us patched thru to VHF for other dept's/agencies/county fire dept's. etc. to talk to us, But if we want to sneak around we flip a switch and cut the VHF off to everyone but dispatch and you don't hear us!
For City Police, Fire, And Rescue, That Says We Are Going To Full Time NexEDGE and all you will hear is dispatch over VHF when you need them, You will not hear anything else from us...
For Both City and County That Says: We're losing our Interoperability Features and Screwing Up But Don't Want To Admit It..
Brian, sounds like their trying to go a cheap route to update their radio system! I think their headed for problems down the line, but what can we do. Sooner or later scanning will be a thing of the past, I hate it!!!
