I'd have to guess it has to do with the rest of the system merging with GATRRS without them. There was an article concerning it from April 2017 here on the forums.

City of Odessa has upgraded their radio system with a new switch while their old switch is still working with the PPBRPC system iintil they are move over to GATRRS. Therefore, City of Odessa is no longer being rebroadcast on the PBRPC system. The City of Odessa is going to full ENCRYPTION.

Link to article on Channel 7 News.

New Odessa radio program concerns outside agencies.

This is the reason the PBRPC system went to GATRRS because of City of Odessa price of using their switch.

Odessa should have saved the Million or 2 dollars for the core, the FTE's to manage it, and just rode the same circuit to GATRRS.

Heads in the sand, or up their arses.

Kudos to Permian. Solid HLS leadership.
