Mobile, Portable, Consolette and Aircraft Radios
Effective January 1, 2021, all new radios added to the ALMR System MUST be TDMA capable or enabled.
NOTE: Although the ALMR System does not currently support text messaging, future System upgrades may offer that capability. Please consider your agency’s requirements (now and in the future) when purchasing subscriber units. Always check the subscriber unit specifications, and software requirements, to ensure you know its capabilities. When in doubt, ask your servicing agent or contact the Operations Management Office.
