    It appears not to be a very big push on updating.

    Was thinking the same thing. Maybe a 2-fer Tuesday on updates? Guess we'll find out in the future.

    Did you men find anything? No Sir.
    Did you? No Sir?
    You, over there. Did you find anything?
    Man we ain't found ....

    Figured the thread needed a Mel Brooks movie quote, like all good threads. And it fits since we're all combing and not finding.....

    You're a jerk! Had to clean off the keyboard when I got a picture of a hair pick as soon as I read "Comb the desert."

    Checked this morning and found a reference award number for 2007. Looks like some new radios will be coming our way!

    Nothing since the computer DJs. Usually about 5-6 weeks between the DJ rounds.

    No way to find out. Info comes when it comes.

    I would suspect that the next round of DJ's will be midway through the process.....around round 12.

    haven't heard anything else after the 10 ?'s or the letter asking if we would accept if they lowered our asking price. I still hope this is a good sign. I am just waiting for another word. Everyone that I have talked to say's it's about 95% a good sign.

    Question

    Just got in a 1199a update request today but cannot access it. Will call the helpdesk tomorrow. Is this a good thing? We put in for a vehicle this year.

    Was the Tuesday posting of 1199a's small? I did not hear much chatter in the forum so I can only assume it was another small post. Anyone care to venture a guess when DHS will open the gates and let some larger announcements roll out? They have a lot of money left to distribute and 3X the number of rounds already announced still ahead.

    Patience may be a virtue but it isn't any FUN!
