    Fire Departments, AFG and 911 joining together to get a new dispatch system for narrowbanding. Smart folks! (If I do say so myself)

    Default What type of system

    Is this an 800 mhz system? Trunking? Just curious what type of system allowed you to re-use your old radios.

    Congrats. Had to re-read that since it didn't make sense the first time knowing you were still in Missouri, since most of us layfolks from other areas think that the state abbreviated Miss. is Mississippi...

    LOL - they make a great radio system, but evidently are not too clear on state abreviations!

    Not to hijack this thread, but does anyone have any sample successful AFG regional applications they'd be willing to share? Looking communications but interested to see what others have done as far as "regional", any appliances/hoses?
