Purpose states for interoperability between public safety agencies. Any idea if this will supplement the current 800 system or totally replace.
It will eventually replace the Motorola 800 MHz system. The system is still in the planning phases and won't be operational for a few years yet.

So this morning I was able to listen to Plymouth/Conshohocken PD. Since about noon, nothing but "noise". Anybody have an idea what happened? Thx.

With the new Uniden scanners (536/HP436HP) P25 phase 2 is now supported. And looking at the letter released by County last year, they are providing funding for the Motorola APX type radios..... they do support phase 2.

Funding? Interest-free loans maybe, but they aren't giving out any money - at least not on the fire side. We'll be sticking with our XTS's for probably another year or so.

Oh I know that...... county will find a way to force those old units be changed. Although the fire service will be the last service moving to P25 phase 2.

The county doesn't need to find a way - Motorola has end-of-lifed them.

I noticed today that the county renewed a license for one holding 500 MHz freqs only. what are these for or were meant to be for? just curious....I've heard everything over the years from mdt's to a backup plan in case the original implementation of the 800 system went south.

Compare it to Delco freqs, maybe they're the same and the idea was for interoperability? Just a thought, I have no idea what freqs Montco has in 500.
