Statewide radio cost is below original estimates
The perceived astronomical costs of a statewide emergency radio conversion came down to real dollars and cents for Hubbard County last week, and the end result was stunning.
The county may be able to install either the VHF digital or 800 megahertz (MHz) radio systems for $500,000 to $780,000, well below the ballpark figures of $1 million to $2 million that have been tossed around. That is according to sales representatives that attend regional radio users' monthly meetings.
