Default Nashua Alderman to Consider upgrades to City Radio System

NASHUA - A proposal to spend up to $1.6 million for upgrades to the citywide radio communications system will be introduced to aldermen today for its first reading.

A maximum bond of $1.6 million is being sought for the first phase of a major radio communications project that could ultimately cost $5 million to $10 million over the next five or six years.

The radio systems are about 12 years old, according to Alderman Brian McCarthy, the board president, who said their life expectancy is a decade.

"Many of the radios are not manufactured anymore, and we can't even get parts for them," he said.
Any idea if they are going to go over to a P25 Phase I system in addition to the upgrading of the portable and mobile radios.

the original price for the system when it was installed was $7.2 million..since then after several failures,including a lightning strike to fire alarm,it has had its problems,however the system as a whole is allready outdated,the cost to repair,or update the system(which is no longer supported by motorola due to its age)would probaly be a little cheaper,however in the long run,why not just replace it?
