Dead spots will come alive in Allen County



June 4, 2014 - 12:00 AM

Emergency radio communications should be clear as a bell throughout Allen County when a new relay antenna is raised from 238 feet to 370 on a tower near LaHarpe.

County commissioners gave Sheriff Bryan Murphy thumbs up on the project Tuesday morning. Cost will run between $15,000 and $20,000, Murphy said, with funds coming from 911 emergency telephone reserves, which today contains about $144,000.

Murphy explained that when radio communications were moved to a more narrow band, from 25 megahertz to 12.5 by Federal Communications Commission dictate, dead spots became more of a concern.
