Jim, as a member of RACES, I have been enroute to a specific area, as directed by my EOC and been redirected to a different area while in transit, due to a higher priority. That isn't going to happen with this device and would prevent me from receiving "Messages directly concerning the immediate safety of life of individuals, the immediate protection of property, maintenance of law and order, alleviation of human suffering and need," A quote from the FCC. Time lost arriving at the "wrong" location, waiting to "park" and report arrival and then be redirected, could result in the loss of lives or cause additional suffering. I for one can't and won't go that way!
