The State Radio Project team is focusing on the trunked radio system cutover process, a huge effort for the project as a whole that has involved years of planning. The cutover will bring the trunked radio system and the console system together. Both systems are operating well individually, and integrating them is a very complex endeavor.
"Every step for a successful cutover was planned down to the smallest detail, but it's only through testing that you find out where the incongruences are," said Lisa Strader, State Radio Project assistant manager. "When you think about the system operating for the next 20 years or more, taking a little extra time to get it right is worth it."
The radio project's civil site construction work in April included breaking ground on the new Doherty Slide site in Lake County.
