    Default Country Fire Authority (CFA VIC) Chooses Tait Digital Radio For New Comms Network



    One of the world's largest community safety and emergency service organisations, the Country Fire Authority (CFA) in Victoria, has selected Tait Radio Communications to replace its 10,000 hand-held and vehicle-mounted radios following a comprehensive tender process.



    At this time, it's expected the APCO P25 digital transmissions will be un-encrypted, which is great news for scanning enthusiasts (with digital scanners of course).

    I expect the reasoning behind this is that there are numerous CFA volunteers who 'keep an ear' on what's happening in their area and often are already prepared to 'turn out' if/when called.( plus, it's cheaper )

    An orange casing was chosen for the portable, making it easier to locate in low-light, especially on a fireground.
