I talked to the county radio techs the other day.
Heard about the flaws in the system, won’t go into them now. The thing about TGs is if there is a phase 1 radio on a phase 2 TG, the entire tg is brought down to phase 1. Panama City beach fire uses Harris portables, has APX radios as backups and XTL radios in trucks. So the entire TG is phase1. All of the sheriff office is on Harris so they are all phase 2 but if just one Motorola radio switched over to their channel it would bring the entire TG to Ph1.

Reversion of a channel to FDMA is not a “flaw” it is by design to help localities transition older equipment to new infrastructure, and save money in the short term.
