Yes it was.They didn't want to go to Open Sky. I think it was because of the coverage was not what they wanted. so they went with P25 instead.

Your welcome.I heard it was terrible to. Its like Las Vegas when they are on there Open Sky but they seem to use their cell phones more than the Harris radios because the system sucks and they are embarrassed to admit it.
