    Not2L84U2 - why not do your own grant to further "build-out" the regional grant that occurred around you? If you could easily communicate with those around you, it would demonstrate "interagency interoperability", any towers or repeaters that you add would likely "fill" any dead or poor reception areas in the interface areas, and because the backbone of the system already exists, it would likely cost you less than a "new" system.

    Thought about that, but it's just not feasible to "add on" to their system. We run 3000 calls per year and to add their radio traffic to ours would just be a bigger cluster than what it already is

    Then my suggestion (for what it's worth) would be to ask for what you need, make sure that it's P25 compliant, but show some type of interoperability connection between the two systems.

    Best of luck with your project!
