Glad it worked, and you may well be safe for a while then. The system is not
that old and was most likely quite expensive when they bought it. The
problems with the frequencies let out to Nextel showed up in time that many
places already knew about it when they set up a Mot. 800. that was why we
never had to reband here and so your area may also not have to.
There are of course always sales guys trying to push something new, but
with the economy the way it is many places are not willing to tell the
voters they want to buy some new toy (system) when the old one still works
fine.

Thats great,

and just be glad that your area hasn't the idiots in charge , that we got.
they went to a P-25 digital system and all medical talkgroups have
been encrypted, so no scanners work ..big whoop...
(did,nt listen to the medical before the change so no big thing for
me,) but the whole concept of going to a common system for the metro
area was to insure that all services could work and communicate.that just
went out the window. no-one can talk to medical and medical can't talk to
fire or police . stupid
anyway, glad the 2050 is working for you..

Australia had a Natural Disaster back in 1974 when a Cyclone just about
wiped Darwin off the map

in the following days there were Police sent from other states to help
out. but it was a nightmare as they all had their own radion equipment
and it was completely incompatible making radio comms almost impossible

The State Govts got together and formulated a "Police Band" with 64
channels from 467.850MHz to 469.425MHz to be used Australia wide so that
no matter where they were sent comms was possible

the Motorola got into the Police around the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games
and convinced them to go for an P25 digital radio system, The same as
being used by the ACT and Northern Territory Later QLD also went the same.

However Tasmania went for an 800MHZ Ericsson EDACS system
South Australia went for a 400MHz encrypted digital trunking system
Western Australia went for a 420Mhz non trunking digital system
and Victoria went for a 400MHz encrypted digital trunking system


Now the only stated capable of communication between states ins
NSW/QLD/NT and ACT

the rest have completely incompatible systems


so much for their disaster plans
