Technology marches on. I believe that many industries will move on the bigger and better things ( VoIP, LTE etc...) because it's easier. But...

There will always be someone behind the curve' I believe the Oklahoma Highway Patrol still has some Low Band VHF repeaters that are Crystal controlled, that are still in use on a semi regular basis.

Movie production crews and special event groups still use itinerant uhf frequencies for production, and I don't really see a replacement for that coming soon. Hard to replace the " here's a radio, try not to lose it ."

We had the same mentality when trunking same along, the digital, DMR, so on and so on.

Same things change and go away, but it all comes full circle somewhere.

Just one mans opinion.
