Cool ARLINGTON TX

The city will spend $10.8 million over the next decade to upgrade its outdated public radio system, allowing the police and fire departments to communicate with other city and county agencies without interruption during regional emergencies such as tornadoes.
The state has set the goal that all first-responder agencies’ radio systems be interoperable, or able to communicate with one another, by Jan. 1, 2015. To help meet that goal, the Arlington City Council voted Sept. 3 to approve a 10-year lease with Motorola Solutions to buy digital radio equipment that will increase interoperability with other agencies in Tarrant and surrounding counties

Well, I hope they don't follow Houston & Ft Worth, Texas regarding the ridiculous use of encryption that has ensued. Now, they are learning the buzz words used and/or possible coached by their radio salesperson.
