LMR is dying. Large systems will be the wave of the future. The individual city systems are a thing of the past. There is a not a clear revenue source for the smaller companies to stay alive.

Let me know how that digital stuff works out for you.

WSP may have to consider one more area over on the Olypen that stays analog as they cannot make p-25 work any better than the park service has. Digital cannot work efficiently with lots of multipath.

Reply from article I found:

Many in the LMR industry have expressed surprise by the closing of the JPS business unit, but longtime JPS customer Randy Kaminsky—the communications/911 supervisor for the village of Bradley, Ill.—said he understands the move. The migration to IP-based backhaul and digital-radio protocols such as P25— a standard designed to enable radio, console and system interoperability—have reduced the need for standalone interoperability solutions such as those in the ACU product portfolio, he said.

“The fact that a lot of manufacturers are integrating their own signal-to-noise voting into their own equipment means the market has pretty much dried up,” Kaminsky said during an interview with IWCE’s Urgent Communications. “There’s still some market there, but does it justify their investment?”

Saw a letter from these guys today expressing their shock as well.


My worry is how many of these decks I have out there and the lack of spare parts Ive been saddled with. I know a local county that has 3 entire racks filled with SNV-12s that have one spare SNV-2 card. At least I have a spare for every deck I have out there.
