Governor Walker shared her 2006 budget recommendations today.  The budget includes some key recommendations including support for ongoing maintenance and connectivity of the Utah Wireless Integrated Network voice interoperability service which provides interoperability between UCAN's 800 MHz network, the National Guard, the State's VHF networks in rural Utah, and others, including a smartphone interface.  The UWIN technology subcommittee met this morning in Provo.  The team reviewed narrowband migration, mesh networking, and the implementation of the mobile data network.  Utah is the first state to begin implementation of a statewide 700 MHz data network.  Initial testing here in the Salt Lake Valley shows strong signal strength throughout our projected footprint.

The budget proposal is the next step to get any kind of initiative off the ground.  The Huntsman team has already said they are looking to cut another 1%.  That could go in many directions, and then the Legislature will put their imprint on it, but it's great to see the economy turning around here and the proposed budget reflects that.  Here's the press release.
