Does anyone have any reliable info on the new radio system in the works for Oneida County? I'm considering the TRX-1, but before I make the plunge,I want to make sure that it will be able to recieve the new system.Thanks for any info.
From what ive been told, JPJ will keep EDACS running for their Business SubscribersIt's a VHF P25 Phase 2 Motorola Linear Simulcast system for the cities and New Hartford. The remainder of the County will be upgraded to Analog Simulcast.
Not 100% sure what Rome's plans are with the NXDN other than Public Safety shifting off. This transition also likely spells the end for Utica's EDACS. I would reasonably expect JPJ to shift their handful of remaining business customers to something else and decommission the system.
They are saying this fall. The system has been staged and they are doing some of the mobile installs. I would expect to see the excavators going in Rome and New Hartford for the tower sites this spring.So, I guess the TRX-1 would be a safe bet. Appreciate your reply. Are you aware of when it should commissioned ?

Each P25 frequency band describes a range of 4096 possible channels that start at the base frequency and include every channel/frequency that is an increment of the spacing/step size. While the band may start in an NTIA allocated frequency range and span across multiple other allocation bands, the actual subset of channels from the frequency band used by the system still has to match the frequencies allocated for the system.Why are NTIA frequencies being broadcast in a civilian trunked band plan?

Did you end up purchasing the TRX-1 scanner? The latest on the system upgrade for the city of Rome is described in the May 10, 2017 Common Council agenda. A new 195 foot tower will be located just off Erie Boulevard on South Charles Street. Additionally, new mobile, portable, and control station radios will be purchased for both the Fire Department and the Police Department. Based on this information, it appears that Rome will drop the NXDN system in favor of this new P25 system.Does anyone have any reliable info on the new radio system in the works for Oneida County? I'm considering the TRX-1, but before I make the plunge,I want to make sure that it will be able to recieve the new system.Thanks for any info.
