From what I heard, they are planning to upgrade to a Project 25 TRS. Unknown if it will be Phase I or II.

Has anyone looked for any new control channels or they not that far along in the upgrade. I am surprised about how quiet this upgrade is. Not heard much at all about it. I am guessing its still going to be a Harris system but if they do go p25 Phase I or II would sure be nice for people with scanners :)

That would be good.

I saw that the other day and programmed it into my 396XT. So far, I've only heard a few transmissions, all on TG 1125. One transmission referenced "running lights and sirens..." and a few others a "bunker" was mentioned.

I'd be extremely surprised if this entire system is not encrypted. They already made it known they do not like hearing themselves on the internet.

I am sure there will be more encrypted channels but I bet the main dispatch channels are not but everything else will be. I am sure Fire will not be secure also. Wait and see what happens. I have looked everywhere but still cant find anything online about the upgrade. I am waiting to hear back from someone with communications about some radios for our FD to use for mutual aid with BCFD. I am hoping I can get some more info out of him them.

I take it there's no updates on the police freqs?

Having "scanned" from my HAM equipment and being less than happy, I finally got myself a BCD436HP and noticed a void in the ABQ Police chatter.. Fire, every other city service is in the database, but the police channels are blank.

Have they hidden themselves?

jweeks, ABQ/Bern Co. public safety uses Provoice as their type of digital. This is not P25 and scanner are unable to decode it.
