BOO!  Happy Halloween!

The latest FCC Updates have been posted to the website - FCCUpdates.com.

There was a LOT of data for the week.  Here are some highlights of what came in:

Arizona – City of Nogales (Santa Cruz Co.) has a new 800MHz Phase II system.
California – California State Forestry renewed a lot of VHF NFM licenses.  It is my understanding that those frequencies are also used by CalFire?
Florida – State of Florida has a new 800 MHz EDACS site in Clewiston (Hendry Co.).
Iowa – Tama County has a new UHF NFM frequency for Emergency Services paging.
Tennessee – Monroe County has a new 700 MHz Phase II system.
Tennessee – State of Tennessee renewed their license for “LETS 5”.  It says is an interop for UASI in 3 different locations.  Anyone know about this?
Texas – City of McAllen (Hidalgo Co.) has a new 800 MHz Phase II system.  Unknown if it will merge with others in the area.
Utah – Utah Communications Authority has a new 800 MHz NFM site in Kane County.
Washington – King County now officially licensed on the 800 MHz NFM Interop frequencies.
Washington – Washington State Department of Corrections has new 800 MHz NFM frequencies in Jefferson Co.

Interesting trivia about King County (Seattle) Washington:  In 2005 the State of Washington officially changed the name from King County to, get this, King County!

That’s it for this week.

Be Safe Out There!
