Anyone know what type of system this will be and who is the vendor?

ETMC is converting its analog radio system to a Project-25 (P-25) system. According to hospital officials, P-25 is a manufacturing standard for digital, two-way communications devices. P-25 systems are used by the U.S. Justice Department, the Treasury Department and the Department of Defense.

ETMC lives and breathes Motorola. It will be a Motorola system with Motorola radios. Of course, any other manufacturer's radios will work on it, but not be allowed to be on it.

What is the time-frame? I notice that Phase I is the conversion of Waco, McLennan County and several smaller towns now on VHF to TxWARN. When is this supposed to happen?

Dallas/Fort Worth is also a Motorola enclave, even though everybody has their own system. It will remain staunchly Motorola.

It's unfortunate. Hopefully some of the cities and counties will come around. The quality of other manufacturer's systems and radios have come a long way in the past few years. You can so much more bang for your buck and still get a quality system without being tied to the big (and hurting real bad) /\/\.
