I heard that the AWIN radios could not be upgraded TO COMPLY WITH SOME NEW FCC RULES coming in a few years and they would have to buy all new radios.I wonder what the deal is on this new system that was posted today on the Craighead County DB.
The police and FD are not planning to move there at this time but some of the non public safety city services are using it.I heard that the AWIN radios could not be upgraded TO COMPLY WITH SOME NEW FCC RULES coming in a few years and they would have to buy all new radios.
They can upgrade the old 800 mhz. analog radio system to MOTOTRBO DIGITAL SYSTEM at a much reduced cost.COMPARED TO UPGRADING AND BUYING NEW RADIOS FOR THE AWIN SYSTEM.
Their old analog system is system 2. It's their backup in the event something should go wrong with AWIN as it did yesterday, They used system 2 for awhile yesterday while dispatch was offline on AWIN due to Fiber Problems.Almost every morning I hear the JB FD doing radio checks on digitial and their old analog system!
