Reported to be getting one - but not yet.ALLENL022 said:I have all of that info. But i was told that pg police and fire was also running a trunk system. I figured this would be the best place to check. Thanks
From the RR.com Prince George's County page, re: PGPD:troymail said:Reported to be getting one - but not yet.
I'm surprised that Prince George's got their funding cut considering not only the proximity to DC, but because that county's home to quite a few federal facilities (including one of the major AFBs in Metro DC - I think it's Andrews, right?). What exactly does PG use the EDACS systems for anyway, because it seems like a total waste of radio systems...ka3jjz said:I think the expectation - or at least the assumption - was that they would copy what DC did - they are, after all neighbors - and use their current 490 mhz assignments for PD, and combine the 2 tiny EDACS trunks into one for fire. However, as I understand it, funding from the Feds (due to Homeland Security) got cut, so it pretty much scuttled the plan - at least for now.
