The author asserts that the appropriate standard for land mobile radio (LMR) can be determined depending on the requirements and needs of the LMR. He cites Project 25, a user-defined open standard developed specifically by an for the needs for North American public safety, the TETRA of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, and the MPT1327 of Great Britain. He stresses that all technologies must be considered since the appropriate technology to employ must be based on the needs and budget of the LMR.
