I think a holiday weekend is not a smart time to switch. I could be wrong, but I would not switch before Red, White and Boom.

I heard they were going to start testing on a large scale during Red, White, & BOOM on their event channels, not necessarily "switching over" altogether.

W8RMH is correct. They will be using the P25 - X EZ-# talkgroups throughout the day for RWB.

Gotcha I haven't been monitoring in a little bit. And I noticed it's different then the sheriff multicast. It's not a patch from analog. The locution device is plugged directly into the controller.

I hope the county switches to headsets and they get off those terrible desk mics.

And the analog system has crapped out again. Its fun to listen to the dispatchers and officer try to locate things on the radio.

From a very reliable command source "The Columbus Police Division is scheduled to switch over to the P25 system on Sunday, July 17 at 5:00AM, and encryption will only be used on a couple SWAT and NARC talk groups".
