  • 12/5/10 - WESCOM converted its analog "Police 1" system (158.85 88.5 PL) to narrowband AND simulcast. This system covers Channahon, Shorewood, Wilmington and Braidwood. These transmitters are linked by microwave and "timed" by way of GPS synchronization. The transmitters "re-train" each day (usually at 2am) and re-sync to make sure the overlap zones have good signal. You may hear what sounds like data bursts when "re-training" occurs. Each transmit site also has a voting receiver.
    • There are 4 additional free-standing receivers which are recycled Motorola TAC receivers (8 total receive sites).
    • Tait processes the audio, cleans it up, and sends each audio path to the voter. (This was all done under a series of grants and has been VERY cost effective for WESCOM agencies.
  • 2/11 WPCV634 158.85 R adding sites at Braidwood, Channahon, Wilmington; also at Shorewood
  • 6/11 0004759323 FCC Application for STA for testing of 154.8675 as a replacement for 154.875 input to 158.85 repeater.
