01/22/06 99 W - + 26 - 15 RFD Radio Changeover 1/24 at 9 a.m.

Barring delays, the RFD radio changeover occurs on Tuesday, 1/24, at 9 a.m. Companies have been issued radios, radio pagers, and alphanumeric pagers. Stations have been equipped with "rip 'n' run" printers as well, so the days of extra cross streets and address confirmations and probably gone. Don't know if station pager tones will switch over from VHF to the new system, or if the RFD Alert talkgroup will simply broadcast the warble alert tone followed by the dispatch. Status button "boxes" are not ready yet for apparatus, so expect verbal status updates accordingly.
