The State IDHS has for decades had the 155.025 system of simplex base stations spread throughout the state providing the ability for a mobile to communicate directly back to the State EOC. Safe-T didn't solve that problem either. Really Safe-T just complicated the process.I think the issue that was always overlooked was that this type of system is awesome when it comes to having to talk to the state EOC from a tornado ravaged area like Henryville and some other examples of wide area situations.......
And yes, the 155.025 network will be updated to narrow band equipment and maintained for the foreseeable future.
As for fixing things that aren't broken: That seems to be government's job these days. Lord help us when they get to the wheel.
