Hampshire Hills 800 Interoperability

WRHSAC is assisting the thirteen municipal police departments in the Hampshire Hills region to transition from the antiquated VHF system they have been using to the Massachusetts Trunked Digital 800 MHz system. WRHSAC is providing mobile radios for patrol vehicles, portable radios for personnel, and digital vehicular repeaters which repeat the radio signal received at the car and re-transmit it out. This is particular useful to ensure coverage to the portable radios. This upgrade is enhancing communication coverage, improving system reliability and enhancing safety of both the public and police personnel. This project is ongoing going, with 9 of the 13 department outfitted to date – December 2015.
