norman, ok
I heard a couple radio techs who were in Lawton the other day. They were basically saying
Ft Sill was going with the state as soon as they could get the talk groups programmed. They
weren't that happy with what they had been using. One tech also said the Army liked the idea
of the (New??) Poteau OK site. Would a Poteau provide coverage into Ft Chaffee ???
Could be.

Next to a scanner...
Perhaps they will get a link on the state system, but I would doubt they would swap from their new 3-site semi-encrypted full-P25 system in exchange for a "non-standardized" Motorola type II (and in a different band, so they'd have to buy all new radios too).

I wonder why they aren't happy...perhaps they don't like how digital voice sounds compared to analog?
