NYCOMCO EDACS Site Map and Description
From The RadioReference Wiki
New York Communications Company (NYCOMCO) operates a multisite EDACS trunking network covering three counties in the central Hudson Valley. The general location of each site is depicted on the map above. Local topography demands that sites carrying traffic for a given county be located in an adjacent county when intervening hills or valleys (notably the Hudson River valley itself) would impair coverage from an in-county site. Most business users of this trunked system have been moved to NYCOMCO's UHF trunked systems in an effort to develop the 800 MHz system into an all-public safety/public service network. Business talkgroups shown are for historical purposes. Any business talkgroups that remain active do not always follow the breakdown shown on the map. This system is located within Wave 1 of the Nextel rebanding plan. Sites 1 and 2 appear to have settled into a final configuration. Sites that use frequencies above 866 MHz cannot be rebanded until Phase I (removing inappropriate systems from the 851 to 855 MHz subband) has been completed. It appears there are no public safety users on Site 0004 in Millbrook.
