Folks,

Kent MD is building 3 new & very tall antenna towers (at least one is 330' - a huge leap forward for Kent) as part of a cooperative deal between the County & the State of MD. Eventually, they'll support the anticipated statewide 700 MHZ system (who knows how far off that will be). In the meantime, they will evidently be used to bolster the range of the County's VHF system and that of some State agencies (DNR, etc). Details are scant & this is largely from Kent County Commissioners' minutes (available online if googled).

Anyone know if there will be any expansion/modification of the Kent VHF bandplan in the near term? I'm also curious to see if the State will install VTAC/8TAC repeaters on any of the sites. Those of you who monitor Kent know that parts of the County are poorly covered by the existing towers - so there is much excitement about the project.
