In a previous life I used to sell and repair Barrett HF radios... Top quality kit.

I hear the FDNY are giving out new Motorola radios that work on VHF (around 155MHz for a few building specific repeaters), 400Mhz on site and 470Mhz main dispatch channels as well as 700 and 800Mhz for interoperability. Can't find the story now, it might have been on a forum but they are something like the APX 8000XE.

What can the LFB radios do?
