Are they still in on digital or back to analog? How does it sound down there? Better?

Sounds like they are underwater. Like a trunk system. But clear. Car to car sounds OK.

You must be referring to BCES or MACC trunk systems? Not all trunk systems sound like they're underwater, only digital ones.

Yup, Benton county trunk sounds pretty bad on my 396T. Seattle fire which is about the only other trunk I listen to sounds much better.

Hmmm...Looks like the NAC numbers correspond to the district numbers. The NACs for District 3 are D30 and the NACs for District 5 are D50.

King County/Seattle F-3 is still analog as of 10am today. I suspect a switch-over may happen before the end of the month -- but that's just a guess.

Yesterday, WSP Pierce West was testing digital, went back to analog after a couple hours.

Additionally, LAW SCAN on the Tacoma/Puy TRS was passing the digital audio through, UNDECODED, and was not able to decode it with a radio.

They had Thurston County on State Common yesterday but no testing that I heard here. That's funny about the law scan rebroadcast. Looks like it's time for them to upgrade.

I don't think so? I'll keep an ear on the radios.

Not yet! Heard a few P25 bursts on Thurston Co WSP today and I caught P25 on Car1 from district 3.

At least my primary scanner is a GRE PSR 500. I'll be out of luck with my Pro164 which I use for my scanner radio feed and Pro163. But I also have a Pro96

I wondered what'd happen to all the feed providers streaming WSP using an analog scanner. I'm sure most will just remove the frequencies. I know I couldn't afford a P25 scanner just to provide a stream.
