I noticed yesterday the database info for Chesapeake's P25 system, was updated and added the West Police dispatch and Fire/EMS dispatcha and a Tac. i updated my scanner using the database, but as it has been all along for me, Inhave never heard any transmissions at all on my 436HP for this added system. My P16 (Motorola) system comes in loud and clear, for all of apChesapeake. Is anyone getting transmissions on the P25 system! (Especially where is says dispatch simulcast of the dispatchers)?

I heard second hand that they were using the Harris P25, but went back to their Motorola system. Maybe it is just a bump in the road though and they will be back on the P25 soon. Good luck to them.

Not so sure if they were using the P25 system, previously in the past they've patched one channel at a time, then removed the patch after about a day

I think LeSueurC has explained why some people thought the P25 was live. Sometimes hearing traffic on the P25 does not mean they have gone to it full time yet. Good luck to them.

I've chatted with a friend in CPD. She has no inside info on a switchover. In fact, she had no idea a new system had been constructed! She told me the mobiles and handhelds were in the radio shop for "updating" last fall. Other than that, nothing has been said. You'd THINK if a switchover is happening soon they'd know by now. She's no rookie; she's due to retire later this year.
