Hyannis FD computerized dispatch?

Last two afternoons, I have heard the familiar computerized female dispatching out Hyannis FD calls on Ops 3. This is the same "woman" you hear on Boston FD 453.650 and I have heard her in Alachua County, FL. I assume this testing is for the forthcoming move of HFD dispatch to BPD.
