I've never been up that way but I hear it's really nice.
How do you use the 800 and VHF together is it one radion that does both or are there 2 sets?
IN was supose to go all 800 by the first of this year but they backed off that. I'm not sure what their plan is now.

Hi there,
Welcome to the Communication Group. It sounds like you will be a great addition. I'm in South Bend IN.

We have created a site for responders run exclusively by responders... It is a place with great fellowship on the good days and solid and confidential support when the "bad call" happens. As a Chaplain of over 25 years we wanted a place that responders could come and receive the support for traumatic events with trained CISM responders and more.

Please join our site and invite your friends, too
