I *don't* think the LPE will do P25, but I could be wrong. If it can... you can bet it won't be cheap.

Do you know for sure they are P25 though? Just because they went digital doesn't always mean P25. Given they already have those radios they very well could be ProVoice.

Ah OK... You sure they are LPE200's? Those radios have long been replaced by Jaguar 7xxx's and 5xxx's. As solid as the LPE's were, it seems odd they would upgrade and use an older radio like that.

Cant say iv ever herd of a LPE200 that is P25. Just AEGIS and Provoice
I found that ebay listing and says that KCPD system was 800mhz and is dissabled now
Ask the guy what the feature options are in it and that will tell you for sure.
If it does somehow have option 39 then 5 bucks. sweet lord dont let that get away from you

I've owned more than 1 LPE over the years (as well as Jag's, MPA's & MRK's)... I'm pretty familiar with that they look like.

Just checked Kansas state for edacs systems. Seems to be 3 or 4 that are 800mhz but analog. And one UHF system that is mixed analog and provoice.

The P25 system your talking about has a few 700mhz control and voice channels. So the LPE wouldnt work on that system either way. It dont have the board to make it work and i dont think they ever made a 7/800mhz LPE

The LPE-200 will not do P-25. The radio can do Provoice but needs to have the provoice board installed and then flashed. Now the 700p and the newer radios can do P25 but again you need to make sure they have the right stuff on the inside. Now is you want to drop some cash I think most all of Harris new stuff can be upgraded to whatever. P25, provoice, opensky, so on and so on. Hope this helped
