Source: FE

Surry County, Virginia has selected Federal Engineering, Inc. (FE) to assist in the replacement of their mission critical public safety wireless land mobile radio communications system.

Ms. Melissa Rollins, County Administrator for Surry said: “Surry County completed a study in September of 2019 that recommended we procure and implement a new 700/800 MHz 4 channel TDMA simulcast system. We have contracted with FE to provide technical support for the procurement of this new system.”

Mr. Brad Barber, FE Director said: “Federal Engineering will revisit the requirements identified in the 2019 report and update them as needed, based on current County needs. FE will then schedule FETeamCoverage™, our interactive coverage workshop delivered via the internet. As radio coverage is modeled and gaps are indicated, our subject matter expert will interactively, and in real-time, adjust the model and display the effects of changing site equipment, placing additional sites in the network, and the impact of spectrum decisions.”
