Probably for the Fire Truck Spectacular!New Hartford has been on their "New" Home Alert channel for a while now. It is Nexedge capable and is run in the analog mode most of the time. They can switch to Nexedge mode when they want to talk securely. It isn't trunked just switches to digital. Been that way for 6 months or longer.
I like going to the Fire Truck Spectacular. it's a good time and my son loves it! just like all the parades of apparatus during the holidays when they're all decorated up.I can assure you there is presently no overt intent to tune the public out, fire truck show or otherwise. ( thank you c0untyb0y )
Kenwood nexedge being used on a limited trial basis at this time.
I would speculate so. Central would've adjusted accordingly to whatever the agencies they served operated on; much like the PD with EDACS. Its as simple as adding a Nexedge receiver into the console.would NHFD have tried NEXEDGE if Central Dispatch stayed on the air?
