According to an article that appeared in the 03/24/2013 edition of the Omaha World-Herald, Nebraska state troopers are the latest group to report that P25 digital radio problems are too risky.
Omaha law enforcement officials say the $17.3 million state radio state radio system is putting law enforcement officers at risk. The troopers union has filed a formal complaint asking the Motorola digital P25 radio system to be scrapped. There have been numerous incidents of radio system failure supporting the accusation.
This is just one of countless examples of problems with large P25 digital trunked radio systems occurring throughout the country. Most of these systems have been funded with Federal grant money. Is there no oversight or accountability for the performance of these multi-million dollar systems?
