Default SFPD wont upgrade until 2018

According to this article: SF Won't Be Upgrading Ancient Public Safety Radio System Until 2018: SFist

In summary, the 700 mhz system will not be online until at least 2018. Their current XTS 3000/5000 radios are no longer made. I have seen Motorola APX7000 radios on some Officers.

Lost of "interoperability" promises...

Well considering by then p25 will change again and it'll be past a phase 2 and phase probably being obsolete there planning ahead and someone seen the sales pitch. Not to mention apx series is very expensive per option I'd wait to. Specially if budgets are not good. Grants only cover so much. They'll prob replace as needed till then with a apx.
