Now all they gotta do is find the money. Guess I'll have to save up for new scanner or just forget it all together.

Can anyone summarize or provide inside information on when any sort of switch will take place? Might need to buy some Motorola's for my feeds...

From today's Dallas Morning News:

Dallas deal with Motorola has ‘pass-back’ that may hurt minority subcontractors.

Looks like it will be APX7000 HTs and 7500 Mobiles most likely. Will Lazo be installing the radios in the Patrol units as well?

Not from the way I read the article. Their portion of the project is to warehouse the new radios, and install the configuration software. Much of their "fee" will be returned to Motorola as payment for the software. I don't think they will do the actual installs.
