They is a good possibility that Sheboygan County may also jump on board this system and share the costs. Another option is that they may go it alone and build their own Project 25 simulcast system. Either way, it's going to be interesting to watch what happens along the lake shore area in the future.

Nope, Sheboygan County is going to go it alone. The Communication Council has been talking about moving from analog to digital for about a year now. 2015 has been mentioned as the year the trunking system may go digital.


Back to Manitowoc County,
On March 9, Joint Dispatch will be bringing the new frequencies up, and after March 9, they're going to try too use a 3 month time period for everyone to either narrowband or switch up to 800.

It also appears that Manitowoc County is changing it's Fire Repeater from 154.280 to 156.240 (per license: WQOH255). 154.280 will probably become a simplex fireground channel.

New Manitowoc County fire frequency (156.240) is active doing tone out tests with county fire departments with PL 151.4. I can hear it here in Appleton.
