Anyone hear anything?
The current fire chief is the point of contact for all communications licensing in town. Police, fire, DPW, BOE, anything. I believe he has been for years, even prior to being chief.

@r60 Do you know the status of the system? Has there been any physical work at all on any level to date, or is it still hopes and dreams?

I do not. I have not been to Shanghi Jazz otherwise I would have snooped.

Conjecture is a professional services contract got them this far (a 3 site system) on paper.
That is cheap money compared to the next step.

Now that a license is issued, more consulting, proposals, bids, and lastly a bond ordinance. In municipal time that would be all of 2021.

My sometimes fuzzy memory tells me the Rose City has quite a number of departments AND utilities. That likely means a fair number of subscriber radios and expense.

Just a WAG Q1 Q2 2022 IF budget issues don’t pop up. We shall see.

So noted. I asked cause it wouldn't be the first time Madison started something first, then did the paperwork later.

My little brother had some conversations this morning and went for a drive this afternoon. This is what he came up with:

1. No emissions on any of the frequencies. (Didn't expect any.)
2. All three sites now have 700MHz sticks mounted.
3. Kings Road should be fully installed.

Clearly ”little brother” is not a spectator. I suspect he may not mind the cold weather like you and I. More on this when warmer weather returns.:cool:

Sean never has been.

As to minding the cold? It's 17F, with 33kt NE winds and a 2F windchill here right now. And I'm loving it. lol.
