Default Rutherford Using P25

It appears Rutherford County is beginning use of their new conventional P25 system.

Closer monitoring is needed to determine what is being used for what, and NACs etc...

I drive into lascassas daily and monitor 460.200. So far still analog. I'll post back if it goes digital.

I have been monitoring the freqs licensed with p25 emissions. Caught one that is a mirror of their county fire analog transmissions. Submitted it already

Have been monitoring daily lately. Live in Murfreesboro.

From inside sources: Currently only RCFD is testing P25, patched to the analog. RCSO is eventually going to test once they get enough radios sometime in the future.

Could you log the NAC (tone) in use and submit it please?

milf is correct. RCFD is the only department actively using P25. They’re trying to simulacast in analog, but as of yet, the analog simulcast sounds pretty terrible. RCSO has been transitioning to APX radios for the past year or two and will probably be next to go live. RCEMS, per usual, is way behind and will need to replace 90% of their radios before they can make the switch. They’re still using TK-2170s and TK-790s with only a handful of P25 capable TK-5220s, NX-5000s, and VP7000s floating around.

Still curious why the county did not work together with Murfreesboro to go TACN.

Politics mostly. At the administrative level, the relationship between the city and the county is about as bad as it's ever been. The county has pretty well taken a stance of independence when it comes to public safety systems and resources, not wanting to share or colocate anything. This isn't necessarily a new position for the county, however, coupled with tight fists, it has historically led to a lower quality of service in most of the systems they've implemented. All the while, officials get to stroke their egos and end users suffer.

You said it. The current FM conventional system has certainly improved over the last few years with the addition of voted receiver sites, but even the switch to simulcast was so poorly executed that it only marginally improved coverage in some rural communities at the expense of coverage in the city. In building coverage and talk out is still absolute trash and dead spots abound. The only saving grace is the unit repeaters which I'm almost certain will disappear once the P25 switch is made as they won't want to upgrade them. It's incredibly frustrating. My only hope was that the switch to digital would be done on TACN, Metro, or Murfreesboro's system and facilitate a leap into the 21st century with reliable radios. But that's not gonna happen and a P25 conventional system on the current infrastructure won't improve things much.

Input frequency of 154.9500 identified for RCFD P25. Same NAC as output.
