City of Milwaukee OpenSky Radio System Information

The City of Milwaukee has just about completed implementing a city-wide digital radio system called OpenSky. There have been many broadcasted coverage issues in the local media regarding this system. It is not monitorable by any radio scanner that is currently on the market. Although, the city has offered citizens to view active calls for the police and fire depatments: (Though they are 60 to 90 minutes old)

The Milwaukee Police Department + Milwaukee Fire Department are now operating entirely on this radio system. Most city government agencies are operating on the system, also.

I was provided talkgroups for the police department from a police officer I know. As for Milwaukee Fire Department, these were the planned talkgroups from a document I found online from a year ago. The radio "Profile" names are in green.
