I believe I'm recieving the Rome Adams co. site. Found it on Wisconsin scanning home page 155.43 motorola trunking. There's no site information for motorola trunking on the scanner display except for the recieving strength percentage part. I noticed along with the normal motorola trunking motorboat noise is a chirp every few seconds.You won't hear anything on any of the frequencies for about a year, maybe more. Not all the licenses have even been issued. The listing on RR was premature, not to mention incomplete. When it's real, I'm sure it'll be listed.
As rvictor pointed out, that was from the new Washington County P25 simulcast system that is being built out and tested. Washington county's radio system has always covered very well and this new system appears to be no exception.I believe I'm recieving the Rome Adams co. site.

Benefits to the customer include elimination of a single point of failure, reduced capital expenditures, and one of the lowest life-cycle costs in the industry. The system meets the government mandates for narrowband operation as well as for Project 25 compliance."
Added Carl Guse, WISCOM Project Manager for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, “Our mission is to build an interoperable communications system that will serve all public safety agencies in Wisconsin. This 80 site statewide system will provide coverage throughout the 65,000 square miles of the State of Wisconsin. The IP25 system will enable our first responders to maintain communications while roaming throughout the state.”

We are pleased to note that contract awards like this one, which are integral to our long term strategic growth, further validate the direction we have taken in the systems market.” The company’s award-winning ES Series of Project 25 compliant radios are also included in this contract, Jalbert added.
