7369Re: [BCD396XT] Australia's miners, gas operators drive towards digital radio
- Feb 12, 2013I think part of this Wayne is the technology is making better use of the spectrum by going digital thus allowing narrowband allocations down from 25khz spacing to as low as 6.25khz single voice path using TDMA techniques. The bitch is the proprietary encode/decode algorithms like Mototurbo or Provoice, which scanner manufactures like Uniden do not have rights to. So it's either Analog or APCO P25 for Public Service. For me when aircraft goes digital I will gut my radios and put blinking Xmas lights behind their displays...
