MADISON, Wis. - The rollout of Dane County's $18 million emergency communications system set for Monday has been postponed again, and its day-to-day manager said there is no information available "as to when it may commence."

The system, known as DaneCom, was supposed to come on line last summer to connect emergency responders and public works officials around the county.

In an email last week to municipal leaders around Dane County, Chad Fleck, the DaneCom Radio System Administrator, acknowledged that the company building the system, Harris Corporation, continued to have intermittent audio issues on the new radio console equipment and that he hoped the fixes would be made in weeks, rather than months. He said the problems have been hard to track down.

What kind of a system is being installed?

Just saying it has audio problems at the console doesn't say much. Sure it is a Harris system, but Harris has a number of different systems. Just because it is being installed doesn't help much it telling the world much about what is going on.

It`s a P25 trunked system with (i believe) multiple sites around Dane County. There`s a thread about it in the Wisconsin radio discussion forum if you want to get more on it. N9NRA
