Has anyone gone to the 700 Mhz system? What do you think so far?

Havn't gone to it yet, rumor has it around here inthe next year or so I think the entire county has to go to it, so that we can all communicate if needed. We are still working on 400 mhz. Stay Safe...

I actually miss my old 400mhz. There's like a gazillion channels, sure, but you can only talk to other agencies on the MARKS channels, which are sortof "pay as you go", so of course, you have to have to be careful of budget constraints, and ask a supervisor for permission to actually USE them.

Now, there are a few good interagency channels. We can now call our local county records office vs. going through dispatch if we like. And the radios mix trunked and non-trunked frequencies.

I wish we would go to something different........up on the north end of the county your hand-held is almost useless, better suited for an impact-weapon at best.

We've recently gone to the 800mhz system and it has its ups and downs. The sheriffs office in our county is still on 155 range and we have a hard time communicating if we are out of our units due to not carrying two hand helds. Ive. psoted a review of the 800mhz handheld that we carry in the gear section of the site. Thanks- ptl310
