Digital Mobile Radio Comes to Oklahoma - aka Moto-TRBO

Digital Audio is making serious in-roads into Oklahoma with a series of DMR machines hitting the air-waves in Oklahoma, and we already have a number of D-Star machines around, now we've added another digital mode called Digital Mobile Radio. Marketed by Motorola INC under the trade name Moto-TRBO. However, you don't need Motorola Equipment to use the mode.
