Look for 155.610 to replace 159.210 when the switchover is complete. When the license (KSB362) was modified for P25, 155.610 was added and 159.210 was deleted.

Listening to county fire today, they stated on the air that the narrowbanding of county fire channels was complete and that the paging channel and dispatch channels will now be in use. Paging is the old county fire channel (154.3400) and the new dispatch channel is 154.9650 PL186.2.

This morning on Newsline 9 they did a story on how Marathon Co Fire and EMS is switching to digital today. I was wondering to myself if they screwed it up and confused digital with narrowband. . . . Gotta love mainstream media !

How true there . However, you must remember that the media gets it`s info from a Public Information Officer of some sort, also, the media tend to report what this dude tells `em even if it`s not totally right, hence the bit about MC going digital starting today. I can add this, it appears that WATS (AKA MetroRide) is transitioning to digital, likely MotoTurbo, been hearing raw digital on their "WATS 3" channel for a while now, unfortunately my `396T can`t decode it (oh well ), so there`s defenitely eveidence to support some switching to digital around here. This`ll be really intresting just to watch and see what crops up. N9NRA

You are looking for at least $350-500 for a new, digital scanner. Check the classifieds here as they may have cheaper ones.
