With DMR we have found improved speech and intelligibility, and improved coverage – those are issues that face us on a daily basis… We use analog radios in power plants today around compressors, motors, pumps. That means a lot of ambient noise. The vocoders in a digital radio will recover speech more effectively and reject that ambient noise.
