This is what I was wanting.They are not fully up to the P25 standard. They still use the 3600 baud control channel. All voice traffic is digital to the P25 standard.
What the did complete is the rebanding project as well as installing a new controller (which is 9600 baud CC capable). It is very likely they will change but not in the near future and very unlikely that it would even be in the next 3 years.
Does anyone have an accurate updated channel/TG list? The database here and the Wiki at ScanNewEngland don't match up and I think there were a few things I heard when they did the mass reband/update that didn't jive with either list. Unfortunately my notes are all on my old computer that is currently OOS.
Bringing non-state entities onto a state trunked system by subscription has not, in other states, worked out too well:There is steam to move to full 9600, however the funding in the past year or so for any further advancement has basically disappeared (state and federal funding).
The system as it stands now is very capable, and other than 3rd party manufactures to get on the system, there isn't a true need to cover over to full APCO25 trunking...right now the cost doesn't justify the benefit. If anything, capacity expansion and coverage enhancement is at the time of the list where its needed. DOT was rumored to be the next major user of the system but I don't know the status of that (again, funding).
What I would love to see is it become more available to local municpailities to sign onto the system and make it a true "state system" than primarly a CSP system. There is no policy that local users can't come onto the system, but no one is really knocking on their doors to come over either.
Current frequecies for Troop H :Unless someone changed information, the list on rr was current with the rebranding effort for CSP specific talk groups.
Current frequecies for Troop H :

As seen on Scan New England (Thank You Scott and CG)
The 6th channel has been in use for almost a year. 851.0375
The RR database is not current. The database admin was aleady told to use that info, but it was never changed.
