Boy does this feel like dejvue, all this was mentioned many times before. ONLY the radio shop has Icoms with NXDN and encryption. WHY because we give sensitive info back and forth about the infrastructure we work on. The APX is for Fire Command ONLY and there are like 2 APX portable's total (all bosses). We still have about 600 HT-1250 radios in stock, and those will be all issued before any of the 2000 Icoms in the stockroom. BTW most personnel don't want them after they heard they came with GPS tracking built in.
Also Fire Brigade does not use the MOW repeaters they have their own. In fact I am on my way to update work on one right now
