Hi I'm from South Carolina. I'm curious do Alabama state troopers carry portables. I ask because every photo of them i see they never have portables on them. Thanks all.

That may be, but they are also digital in certain areas. They are definitely using Mobile county P25 system.
Is that just a simulcast, or separate from the old analog repeaters? I used to listen to the Mobile post since it was one of the few analog VHF signals left around here, but I rarely heard any activity, and most of that seemed to be one-way dispatches to troopers well outside my listening range.

analog is still used state wide but some digital is used also.

in the past troopers had access to the counties they worked radio sytem.
i have heard troopers on blount county/chilton/cullman sheriffs dispatch freqs in the past .
i seen a post here that they had a all band mobile radio or were working towards that .
i think the capital police has access to the montgomery system or did .
warren can you throw you input since your close to that area .

I know troopers in Montgomery have access for the trunked system they have, can’t remember if it’s AIRS or Montgomery’s, If I had to guess they would consider moving towards the trunked system while keeping the analog system as a backup

In some parts of the state you will also hear them mention "the link" quite often. This refers to their Critical Linc handsets. For those who may be familiar, Critical Linc is the LTE replacement for the Southern Linc iDEN system. Critical Linc provides them push-to-talk communications with bases and other troopers statewide, and is unmonitorable.

it all depends on the area/ counties they work. if the county has a trunked system they might be on it .
the state is only dispatched on analog vhf or via mdt(car computers) if they have access to a county trunked system its only used for interop .
very unlikey u will hear a trooper dispatched to a call on a county trunked system .its possible but unlikley .
if the troopers do in fact have all band radios in vehicles you can bet its there, but how much its used got me .
