On Officials knock new radios
The existing transmitters are being used with digital encoders/decoders piggybacked to them. That would be why they can't just use the analog system while they test the digital. Narrowbanding was introduced in the 90s and made mandatory by the end of this year Radios made since 99 -2000 are compatible with narrowbanding, but not digital, as someone said the county drank the system sellers Kool-aid. As many departments had radios that were more than capable of doing narrow band. P.S. the reason the FCC mandated narrow band by 12/31/2012 is frequencies are licensed and by narrowing the band widthes more descreet channels are available to police fire and businesses

On Agencies readying new radio system
This isn't "OPen Sky" It is P25 Digital Repeaters, Handhelds and Mobiles on VHF freqs. Departments will use Digital Transmissions for communication with 911 dispatch, but will continue to use existing radio freqs. for communications with other departments and man to man on scene.
