I agree, 453.875 was a bad call in the first place.

Anyone catch a PL?

This will be the paging for FD's east of the William Floyd Pkwy.

I think they were getting too much interference w/Nassau Firecom on 453.875, which is why they switched. I think if they would have put a PL code on the freq, they would have been ok.

A PL only masks the problem, it doesn't solve it.

If anything, it's worse PL'd, because you may be getting interference from Nassau and might not even know it, resulting in degraded coverage. And of course there's the issue of Minitor pagers not being PL capable, so it really wouldn't matter if the transmitters are PL'd, the receivers are not and would pick up everything.

Frequency coordination for Suffolk to license 453.875 should've never happened in the first place. Not nearly enough geographic separation between the two simulcast cells, certainly not on such a flat expanse of land such as Long Island is.

Fix the issue by getting a new frequency...end of story.
