The logical move would be a simple off the shelf FM or digital VHF system with mobile phones for private traffic. Mobile phones are incredibly cheap to buy & use now & are being extensively used already due to the rubbish Airwave system.
Plus of course a two tier radio system, would mean they are never reliant on one system.

That was really interesting reading ,especially the comments afterwards and it also mentioned about using us radio amateurs to help if there was either another nine eleven situation or even worse a full scale threat to the uk where all cellular communication was knocked out yet radio coverage was still needed to every area .

If something bad did happen I wonder if the government would praise and cover up that there was a real problem with communications and again any system that gets brought in should be government owned so theres no profit margin to be made and with all the digital modes we have now surely something could be built etc and you would think something as important as this would be high on there agenda especially while the elections are on at the moment and we are expecting terrorist attacks with all the new radicals appearing from out of the woodwork !

Thanks for sharing this, I like reading the register for their retro computing articles too.

I briefly spoke to an old school friend who is now in the force, they can tell me exactly where their radios don't work, mainly in the sticks or in supermarkets with metal work.

Seems we are not the only ones who miss 450 mhz duplex!
