When: JULY 10, 2018 - channel changes should be pre-installed prior to change

Please take note that the Royalton Vermont State Police radio system channels will change on JULY 10, 2018. The system is being upgraded to provide consistent coverage throughout the region using a multi-cast design that will transmit and receive using three sites. The multi-cast system will require mobile users to determine the best mobile receive coverage for their current location and make adjustments as they move throughout the region. The three channels for the system are completely different from the original Royalton VSP channel so all users must have their radios updated.

Below are the new channels:

  • Royalton Russ Hill           Mobile Tx 458.3625 PL 156.7                      Mobile Rx 453.3625 PL 156.7
  • Royalton Killington         Mobile Tx 458.3625 PL 156.7                      Mobile Rx 453.7500 PL 156.7
  • Royalton Ascutney          Mobile Tx 458.3625 PL 156.7                      Mobile Rx 453.1625 PL 156.7


The upgrade will take place on a single day -- JULY 10, 2018. Once the upgrade is complete, you will not be able to communicate with any dispatch center on the original channels. The original frequencies will no longer work. Please contact your radio service provider to update your radio programming. Your provider can pre-install the new Royalton frequencies into your mobile and portable units prior to the change so that you will be ready to use the upgraded system once the switchover is made.
