P25 would be of no interest in europe, nearly all digital trunking nets 
use tetra so that is where the surplus is going to come from.

I'm not convinced yeasu/vertex' is going to pull it off to beat d-star 
with this, I fear it will go the same way as their repeater linking 
system wires but time will tell.

still might be usefull if they make cheap data only radios as wel, that 
is a big disadvantage of d-star, highspeed data is only available on 23 
cm and at a high cost. wile 23cm is no problem for me the cost is.
