  • 700mhz Trunked

    We have a radio system that is well over 25 years old. With that we have a hard time talking to our mutual aid partners because they are on a trunked UHF system. We were approved to switch to 700mhz. We have learned that our mutual partners that are also switching to a trunked system on 700mhz. As anyone ever been awarded a trunked system?

    That's a pretty good sized project, and may be beyond the scope of the grant.

    That said - we got a grant to buy radios to operate on the system the county is installing. Several other agencies have gotten grants for the same purpose.

    AFG loves projects that span several agencies. Talk to your partners. If you can find someone to build the system (county, region) you may do well with buying equipment for yourself and those partners.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

      AFG will not pay for the trunking system, but they will pay for subscriber units, as in portables and mobiles. And it will be a 700/800 mhz system. I would make SURE that the mutual aid partners are still going to move to the 700/800 system, as the main reason many were moving is due to the FCC stating the "T" band, part of the UHF band, would be no longer used for two way. That has been stopped, so users on the "T" band do not need to vacate that band anymore. A lot have discarded plans for 700/800 since the band was freed back up
