      lock" operation, or would it listen on all sites that a programmed into the

      I can think of three great examples where the latter would be nice to have.
      OK. There's really 4, but the one example is very local to me. Ohio's
      MARCS, Indiana's SAFE-T net, and South Carolina's SCANA all essentially work

      to be able to hold a conversation.

      I'm currently within scanning distance to at least two MARCS towers. It
      would be nice to have both towers in one system and scan them both.

      Paul, can you throw us a bone on this one?
