Narrowbanding of State of Maine Repeaters.
By Tom Driscoll
The State of Maine commenced switchover of its public safety radio repeaters from wideband operation to narrowband during the week of June 18, 2012.
Specific information about when and where repeaters will be switched to narrowband can be found online at www.maine.gov/oit/services/radio/radioservices/narrowbanding and will be updated as necessary. The switchover is planned to move through sites from north to south, generally by State Police Zones (Department of Public Safety).
The narrowband switchover is being conducted by Maine State Radio Services Operations technicians. Technicians are also installing new mobile radios in State vehicles, and issuing new portable radios to State personnel as part of the MSCommNet modernization project, in synchronization with the switch to narrowband repeaters. Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), as the lead coordinating agency for narrowbanding in Maine, is notifying other governmental agencies of the States narrowbanding moves.Article posted on: June 19, 2012
