Radio Coverage Work Group

Radio Coverage Work Group

The Radio Coverage Work Group is designed to educate and inform the Michigan Public Safety Communications Interoperability Board (MPSCIB) and to propose a pager implementation plan to guide agencies in the transition from analog to P25 paging.  The group serves to provide user training guidelines and pre-deployment testing best practices, address in-building coverage issues by educating users on building materials that block public safety radio transmissions and develop mitigation techniques to facilitate in-building public safety communication
