>The radio system is so old, Masteller said, that parts are no longer made for it. His department had to turn to hand-me-downs from other cities to make repairs. Presently, he said, the only service provider he&#8217;s found is in France.<

Wow! Only in France? Yeah, right!

>&#8220;There are only two or three years left for the radios,&#8221; he said. &#8220;If the SPLOST doesn&#8217;t pass, what are we going to do?&#8221;<

You can always revert back to a VHF or UHF system.

If the providers of P25 TRS didn't charge soooo much, maybe more jurisdictions could afford it.
