Yeah! The good old days indeed!! I read that the new system they're on (TETRA) has had problems, I'm not sure what, same as when they were using encryption on UHF - it was notoriously unreliable at times and they had to keep switching to un-scrambled talking.....I've been told the police here have had communications problems on the island I live on because of the geography (great big cliffs getting in the way of their signals). It'd be dead quiet if you could tune into them here though - it's virtually crime-free!!!
