Default Oakland, CA - Oakland officers sound off on new police radios

OAKLAND, Calif. -- It's been two months since Oakland Mayor Jean Quan unveiled the city's new police radios, and many cops tell us the system is as problem-plagued as the junker it replaced.

The RRDB tells me they are transitioning from EDACS to P25/FDMA. The comment by the officer in the article about people sounding like they are underwater is typical for the switch from analog to digital. No change is ever easy or trouble-free.
