:lol: They'll be waiting longer than 2020. Digital comms are hopeless once the system gets complex.

Hi all
FYI
I have just seen a PTA ad on WAGov jobs for 2 contractors regarding changing from analogue to digital comms.
regards

DFES voice will remain analogue for the the next 20 years. There are significant barriers to digitisation of voice comms for the fire and SES comms.
There is now a significant amount of data being sent from each vehicle either via GSM or SATCOMM (Yes, actual satcomm)
