Still no ITCS east of Kalamazoo on Amtrak

I understand it is installed and being tested, but was told this quite a while ago. I found this post on another board and wonder if it might be true:
The Chargers are ITCS equipped, but Siemens and Amtrak have had problems with getting support from the system manufacturers in developing the required software an and interfaces for the SC44s.

I don't know how a locomotive issue would affect just "east of Kalamazoo". Are the chargers running ITCS west of Kalamazoo?

There are no chargers on any Michigan service train outside of the PM.
If the Conductor is in charge of the train, then why is he promoted to Engineer?

Ok ... then I assume the engines they are running are using ITCS west of Kalamazoo. There must be some other reason it hasn't been activated to the east (other than engines).
