Press Release from The Missouri State Highway Patrol, Troop H

Captain Duane L. Robinson, commanding officer of Troop H, St. Joseph, would like to make the citizens of Troop H aware of a radio coverage survey.  Patrol members and retired Patrol personnel are conducting the radio coverage survey on new communications equipment for the entire Troop H area in Northwest Missouri.  The survey must be done on every road and area to ensure overall system performance.  At times, citizens will observe unmarked patrol vehicles traveling at a very slow rate of speed in some of the more rural areas in Troop H.  The unmarked vehicles are occupied by one Patrol member or a retired Patrol employee and two employees form the Motorola company.  The field testing is expected to last several months.
