That is what they are applying for. DHS Grants. EVERYTHING they have is vintage low-band (45.08) and slightly newer UHF.A town that small would probably have the entire new comms system Paid for by US DHS grants and or loans. I've seen plenty of small towns and small time counties in Michigan do that with the MPSCS system.
I agree. They might not have a "large" population, but, per capitia, they pay the same amount of taxes to the Feds. Why "NOT" try to get something of wht they've paid IN back for THEIR advantage?They are entitled to the grant money and probably need it more than some towns .................Hoser
