Time is now 1 pm. Been hearing for the last 15 min Truckee testing on the new Blue 2. Getting signal reports from various units mainly on Hwy 80 and 49. Units are being repeated. Some audio sounds hot or processed. Will Grey 2 be next?

Have been hearing "chippers" units, anyone know if this could be an acronym for CHP radio service?
Testing also on the Grey 2 now with DC units.

officers getting paid to drive around to test the coverage

it's the smartest use of our patrol officers for the money

chppers budget paying for it so thats why they are using the chppers name

just a few more sites to do then it will be almost ready for cutover

brown should be next after the gry2 has been done

I think CHPERS is doing some more work on Brown right now. They want all officers to be in certain locations by 11:30 and the officers are being told to maintain radio silence and use phone if they need anything.

They have now switched to Brown 2 and are doing radio checks.

12:13 PM - They are now doing roll call.
