• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

What's the status of the new WSP radio system? I've been informed that they are going to P-25 but so far, 155.58 and 155.52 have both been in analog for a long time. They were digital in March/April of last year but that was it.

I thought I read they were moving to 700mhz. Apparently keeping analog vhf running till full transition. Where I am at I catch quite a bit on all their vhf channels.

Control channel 774.634375 sys i.d 1f1 radio displaying that it is a p25 frequency . I thought it might be the new King county transit system . I don't show that frequency for that system and the sys i.d doesn't match.

Is this a mirror image of an existing system ?

Is this possibly the new state system rumored to be in place?

"Were down here?"

I don't know; were you?

"Which area is that frequency P25?"

Vancouver. I think it's P25, anyways. Could be some other packet mode.

Vancouver WSP has been in P-25 since (I wanna say) April of last year. A good friend of mine owns a PRO 163 and texted me one morning saying he can't hear them anymore which led me to check my sources only to realise they'd gone digital. He follows Portland area police, fire, and ambulance talk closely.

I see WSP has a 700 MHZ P25 trunked system in the database now; is this just for Seattle Metro? If so, do we know what posts are moving to it? Also, are we still moving forward with P25 VHF for rural posts?

Follow up

Follow up to Gotdigital. Do we know for sure that it's a P25 phase II system? The two digital scanners I have are Phase I capable only.

I see no submission for the new updated info, so I guess the other active Admin for our State could add to this. at this point I am not sure why it is listed as State wide when it looks like it is only active in one County at this time. kd7kdc are you sure this should not be in the staged area here.

I just broke the WSP sites off the federal iwn page because they are not IWN rather they are only backbone connected to it.
An yes I suppose that it could be set to just one county for now.

I just submitted info for the other two sites. From what others have said... Site 202 was heard around Puyallup and Site 204 was heard in Thurston County (Olympia) which would sort of make sense. (To cover Shelton -- the WSP Training facility.)
