My brother is on the fire dept in lake village, ar and he said the fire chief said last night that the new arkansas mandate is for all departments, ems, fire and police has to go mototurbo by 2013. I explained to my brother that that was not the mandate. It is required to go narrowband by 2013 but that does not mean everything must be mototurbo. Narrowband is just going from 25khz spacing to 12.5khz or smaller spacing which can be done on almost any new radio system. Does anyone have any knowledge of this "new mandate"?
