MCC San Diego Trunk Radio System Status

OK San Diego, it is your turn in the barrel. We have the same basic problem in San Diego as we have in Atwater (see message below).

As some of you readers may already know the Federal UHF LMR band 406.1-420 MHz will use a new bandplan effective 1 Jan 2008. One of the facilities that will be directly impacted by this change will be the Metropolitan Correctional Center in San Diego, California.

Their trunk radio system (TRS) does NOT fit the new bandplan and given the short period between this post and the deadline, I figure they must have changed to a new set of frequencies by now. But I have seen nothing posted anywhere.

So attention in and around San Diego County. If you are within radio range of the MCC SD facility I need your help. Could you please program your scanner with the information below and see if the system is still active with the parameters I have outlined. If not do you see or know where that system has moved to.

Any help is sincerely appreciated and we can even make you anonymous if you are so inclined.
