Digital Simulcast systems are 2-way radio com- munications systems that utilize single frequency transmissions with multiple transmitters. This gives wide area coverage with a single frequency. A com- parator is the device that sources the simulcast signal and sends it to the multiple transmitters. A DekeyiRekey cycle in a Digital Simulcast system can take a long time (2-300ms). It is desirable to keep the transmitters keyed as long as possible to avoid this dekey/rekey delay.
