That would make more sense, I was begining to think that they where having problems with the new digital radios, yesterday or the day before i heard the radio maintence doing some radio testing. (one million dollar reserve money, ummm)I take it they are still using EDACS portables (perhaps patched to the digital system), and they are expediting the portable upgrades to digital.
See - Planned ObsolescenceRadios has less that a 10 year lifespan? What are they using them for? Hammers! We have radios in service with gorillas as operators that are 20 years old. A 4 watt 20 year old radio still puts out the same power as a brand new 4 watt radio. Sounds like a scam to me..
