Okay, then what they meant was that they had just "closed" the channels up there to routine traffic. Given what ya said though, i bet it was a REALLY BIG mess...makes me wish i was up there to hear it (just a tad). N9NRAAs for radio silence for this incident there was none. Most of the opertions took place on wispern. Radio communication was a mess. There was no radio interpole between WI agencies and MI agncies. After having a meeting with Dickinson cnty sheriff; they have developed a SOP for this by interconnecting there 800 system to their old VHF freq.
