Six sites have been licensed in the panhandle/troop I since before 2000. Maybe they are active now.I noticed OHP Troop I (Guymon) has talkgroups now on OKWIN P25. Curious though...they have no towers up there for it!
Some user submitted them. The DB admins add whatever is submitted.So, who decides to put these new TG’s in RR? Does someone know something about the new towers activating?
OKC is one of the biggest sites to upgrade. Its expensive and will be a chuck of time. No idea exactly when.I just wish they would complete the whole package with P25 to include OKC area as well. I heard several stories that OKC will be a loooooong time coming because there are so many radios to “fix.” So many states have complete coverage with their systems but we skimp and only do 1/3rd!
i can advise that whoever programs a lot of radios using the OKWIN system do already have both zones for both systems in them. They have been in many radios for several years by several agencies.They could have set up the system with TGs for the whole state years ago, even in areas where the system wasn't built out yet. Maybe somebody got a hold of some inside information.
