I wonder if EnCon will be able to keep Ray Brook open after that. They still need it.

Yes they will also be shutting down Ray Brook dispatch, not at all different from what was done in Troop G
Where did you hear this? I can Barely receive lewis now in keene valley and whos going to dispatch SP in our area.. Also note 155.595 pl 110.9 in use over this way as well as 167.9...

Lewis will not be able to Penetrate to the east branch ausable area due to the the mountainous terrain where emergencies are prone to happen in winter conditions... And gore SP transmitters are almost unheard of...

Troop cars here can barely reach Ray Brook imagine switching to P25 and penetrating a 1/4 mile mountain peak between Keene and Elizabethtown just to transmit to lewis..
I see nothing but headaches coming up Unless SP are going with repeaters

Any more info please?
Thanks

From what I have heard the dispatchers are going. The State Police are not getting rid of any transmitters and Lewis will be able to access all the transmitters the Ray Brook uses.

Microwave paths are NOT an issue in Troop B. Almost ALL connections to the remote base stations are done via leased line and have been that way for many years. Unless things have changed in Troop B, there aren't any microwave hops from or to anywhere.

also note Infrastructure owned by the NYSP and, unless otherwise noted, used by Essex County, NYSEG, and the NYSP:
1.
One (1) eight-foot microwave dish antenna with radome installed at a centerline elevation of 120± feet AGL;
2.
One (1) six-foot microwave dish antenna with radome installed at a centerline elevation of 120± feet AGL;
3.
One (1) six-foot microwave dish antenna with radome installed at a centerline elevation of 130± feet AGL;
4.
One (1) eight-foot microwave dish antenna with radome installed at a centerline elevation of 160± feet AGL;
5.
One (1) ten-foot microwave dish antenna with radome installed at a centerline elevation of 160± feet AGL;
6.
One (1) 20 foot dipole LMR antenna installed at a tip elevation of 141± feet AGL and used by NYSP only; and

Why do assume the microwave would fail with tree growth? Normally paths are designed with a margin for x years of tree growth in the paths.
Have you seen tree growth in the Adirondacks? especially Essex county where some mountain tops are over 1/2 mile above ground level?

how many x years? The system currently in use is from the 1950's so perhaps 60 years worth of tree growth before another (60 years) system is built.

Right. So, they want to BUILD a ring, to be shared by multiple users / agencies...
Correct and the private lines that Verizon has are so outdated and undermaintained that there are nothing but communications issues with broken t1 lines...
That's why the improved/new microwave system is going in place.
Also not this will be a completely "NEW" radio system and dispatch center consoles

“In addition to improved capacity, the new microwave system is planned to have connectivity with the proposed Essex County system and future connections to Franklin County and other counties within the Adirondack Interoperable Communications Consortium: Franklin, Clinton, Essex, Warren, Washington, Hamilton, Fulton, Montgomery and Saratoga counties.”
