The Michigan System is called MPSCS (Michigan Public Safety Communication System). Even if they just tie their system into the MPSCS network, they should still be able to roam out on the main MPSCS network then..

Never heard if ISPERN but Michigan does have a VHF channel that will simulicast with a talkgroup on the MPSCS system I believe all the time, and they can patch it to wherever they need it.

Since this thread has been revived, I figured I would correct Keith's figures.

Portable or Mobile Radio $240.00 per unit/per year
Control Station $480.00 per unit/per year

Mobile Data Terminal $4,200.00 per unit/per year ($350.00 per month)
Computer Aided Dispatch $21,000.00 per unit/per year ($1,750.00 per month)
The only problem I have with this is the state makes a ton of money off of MARCS. They have close to 25,000 voice subscribers, they are making nearly $6,000,000/year off them alone. Perhaps they should use that money to upgrade their infrastructure.

They only have 4 voice channels in my area, and at least one is active constantly. Add local law enforcement, fire and ems on that and you are going to have people not able to use the system. This was quite evident during the recent flooding. Health Departments, Hospitals, State Troopers, DOT workers, Department of Natural Resources and numerous other agencies use this system already and 4 voice channels doesn't cut it here. It is a great system, but they are throwing too many users on it and don't have the capacity to handle it yet.

They brag on their website that this system is state of the art, however the control channel is 3400bps. This isn't even a true P25 system.

Thx for posting the corrections Tim, when I made that post I was working off of memory, which since the stroke isn't what it once was.

Tracy (the EMA Director), and I, both have the same problem, the State is making a killing. The grant we applied for to pay for the partial roolout the state wants us to have, half of it is to upgrade the tower we have as it is data only at this time.

If I am not mistaken, one of the tower sites you use is at the BGSU broadcast tower.

That's where I thought Neapolis was. Perhaps they should put up something in Florida?

There has been some tak about the WNDH broadcast tower north of Holgate, But then who knows. Personally, if they want something centrally located Malinta would be the ideal place, it is almost exactly center of the county, thats where I have been telling them for years they needed to put the county repeaters.

The County and City of Napoleon are going together to put up a 300 ft tower behing the EOC, will wait to see how that works out.
