Delay in DTV conversion until June 2009 will hamper improvement in some police department communications
NBC Washington (Channel 4) has a report during the evening of Thurs Feb 5 that the Prince Georges County MD Police Department, and probably authorities in many other communities, will not get access to old channels and will not be able to implement a new communications system for another 18 months because of the delay in conversion to DTV and in access to the old channels. New towers and equipment must be thoroughly tested, including during the summer with leaves on the trees. No link to the story is available yet.
