That aside, has VC done any feasibility studies to show that this 700 system will operate better than VHF, especially in the hilly, wooded areas of the county? Plus, VHF is just so much easier with portable repeaters, compatible equipment, cost savings, and INTEROPERABILITY. But I guess they'll have the dual-band radios for that.
Maybe we'll get lucky and they will only encrypt LE comms and keep FD in the clear.. Fingers crossed

Has there been any voice traffic on this system yet? Iíve only seen the control channel active (using GRE PSR600).

Thatís exactly what Orange County did. All law enforcement (with the exception of CHP, which remains on the same system itís had for decades) went full encrypted. Fire, of course, still ďin the clearĒ. Personally, I canít see any reason why theyíd want to encrypt Fire. Even for EMS purposes, any ďsensitive informationĒ, such as patient identification info, would be done over cell phone or MDT.

Thanks for the help!
Iím in east Simi, as well (just south of Cochran and just west of Yosemite). Although I like listening to Simi PD, it wonít break my heart of that goes away. My primary need is for Fire and I canít see ANY of that being encrypted.

Iím using both the 436 and the 536. Donít really listen to VCSO as they patrol such a small area at the east end of Simi that itís not worth it for me to listen to them.

I heard testing last Saturday morning on Talkgroup 99 at 0850 hrs.

It was Station 1 (VCSO ) was testing with VCFD and all of the law enforcement agencies in the county on a radio check.

I hope you're right... Check the thread on the new OrCo system on here. They could encrypt FD as well. LE has been encrypted in OrCo for 15 years now.

Has anyone heard any more voice traffic on this system lately? I've had my scanner on and haven't heard anything yet.

Iím no expert, but I canít see any legitimate reasoning for encrypting Fire. I donít see it happening.

I don't either, but who knows? I really hope you're right.
