I'm sure the decision was prompted by the availability of federal funds to pay for it.Really, what is their reasoning behind it. We are not even talking a small city here.

What a joke
http://forums.radioreference.com/north-carolina-radio-discussion-forum/259243-tarboro-just-takes-cake.htmlI thought trunking was bad, but after hearing digital it makes analog trunking seem like a trip to Disney World.
Digital sounds like total crap half the time and usually the signals are so weak its on par with a kids walkie talkie. Just like digital tv which only gets out 10 miles max. And you half to get the complete signal or nothing. No in between. Not to mention a digital scanner is ridiculously expensive.
Digital is just about the final nail in the coffin for scanning.
I doubt I swill steer my 2 year old nephew to the hobby that I grew up with in the 90s.
Wouldnt be surprised If everything is encrypted by then anyway.

And I always thought how weird for such a tiny town that its been trunked as long as Rocky Mount has (Around 1989-90)

There is a reason you are on permanent moderation.....quit with the troll posts or you will find yourself banned instead of on moderation.Viper652 said:Jellous? I feel sorry for so many of you with all this digital crap. Slowly but surely killing the hobby. And If you think digital is bad, wait until encryption.
Hopefully my area stays VHF\UHF forever.
