I was under the impression that hybrid systems like SAFE-T would no longer be supported by Motorola and could no longer be purchased, that only P25 9600 baud systems would be available in the future. It seems like no new 3600 baud systems are coming online anywhere. I could be way off base on that.w8fcc said:Thats Because the DB may be wrong Motorola and MECA have been testing on 10001 through 10012 and that was listed in the DB as Tac 1-12 but now they start at 10012 in the DB MECA has been calling 10001 S1 T1 so who knows I would hold off labeling anything till they cut over some of the Fire TG listed in the DB are wrong as well. But in the same breath MECA/Motorola called 10012 S1 T6 last night so I dont think that they even know what is going on. Alot of the IMPD radios this week have the wrong Unit Radio ID showing the officers ID number and they have been asking the officers that are wrong ID to take the radios back to MECA sounds like they need more time and not to rush cutover.
If Scott Newman has his way they will wait and maybe start over with a new system hopefuly this time it would be like Safe T. All they have to is go back on Motorola with some good attorneys or a lot of bad press witch they are getting now.
I hope they don't scrap the whole thing and go with Open Sky! MA Com could come in with a slick sales presentation and do a snow job on the purchasing managers.
