KSC Updates Trunking System

The UHF band trunked radio system at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida has received and upgrade from the older Motorola Type II system to a new APCO P-25 Phase II system.

The changes occurred just recently, even as Hurricane Irma threatened the entire state of Florida. Some listeners have posted questions on Radio Reference wondering why they can't hear the KSC trunked system any more.

The new system reportedly has three separate trunked sites and is not simulcast, but using different frequencies at each site.

I will have more information as it becomes available! Check back with this blog...
