The latest updates have been posted to the web - FCCUpdates.com.

 

I found a big surprise in the FCC database for the week – Los Angeles County, California has now applied for and received a licensed for a Phase II UHF-T TRS!  If you have a slow internet connection, you may want to shy away from the California database as there are in excess of 11,000 lines of data.  It’s HUGE!  There are also quite a few renewals of VHF-Lo Band (including the American Red Cross).  Do any of your agencies still use Lo Band?  Anyway, below are some of the highlights of this week’s updates:

California – Los Angeles County licensed for a Phase II UHF-T TRS.
Louisiana – St. John the Baptiste Parish has a new P25 800 MHz TRS site.

Michigan – Michigan Department of Corrections has new P25 UHF frequencies in Ionia County.
North Carolina – North Carolina State Highway Patrol has a new Phase II 800 MHz site in Charlotte (Mecklenburg County).  Addition to VIPER?
Pennsylvania – Wayne County added several new NFM VHF frequencies.
Texas – City of Odessa (Ector County) added a new P25 800 MHz TRS Site to their system.
Texas – City of Amarillo (Potter County) added a new Phase II 800 MHz TRS Site to their system.
Texas – City of Wichita Falls (Wichita County) added new DMR UHF frequencies to both the Kickapoo and Regional Airports.

That’s it for this week.

Stay Safe Out There!
