I already know about the database that it is in there I just want someone to confirm if they have heard them or not. It is in the database but it doesnt mean they still use it or not.
IDOT seems to be working today on the highway. I hear them on Starcom21 but I still dont know about Low Band. It is IDOT district 4.
I used to hear 47.180 with the 123.0 PL for district 4 when they snow plowed. What freq in 47 MHz are the Grundy Co IDOT on?PS: The Grundy Co IDOT are still on 47 mgz....
How come I always heard them on Starcom21 doing plowing if they still use Low Band?Tony, in northern Ill. 47.140 and .380 are still used by IDOT garages and at the Dist. 2 state garage here in Dixon, plus they use starcom21 when low band doesn't permit.
All this info is in the database.
Tony, it's better to have BOTH radios, than just one. It's called redundancy in communications.How come I always heard them on Starcom21 doing plowing if they still use Low Band?
So they have an XTL5000 and a CDM750 probley in the truck.Tony, it's better to have BOTH radios, than just one. It's called redundancy in communications.
In my area; Both are still used in part due to (I think) some trucks may not have a starcom radio, and others on a shift may.
IDOT has a large fleet of trucks and it may not be possible to have a starcom radio in every one of them. "Dead spots" in a zone might be a problem too, so if both radios are in a truck then there's double the chance of talking to their garage or other trucks.
