Today, while we were at roll call, the city flashed our radios to digital.
Now, unless the user selects mute, the radio announces the channel each time the radio is turn on or the channel is changed.
The radio now will chirp, when you press the MIC to let you know when the channel is clear.
If the radio cannot find a signal, it will beep until the signal is regained.
At roll call, the county told us it gives away three million free hypodermic needles to drug users every year.
