Interesting that some of the freqs show FB2 repeater and others FBT trunked

Excelsior PD has been running full encryption for the past several hours. I verified this by attempting to monitor and by watching Pro96com. Not sure if the encryption is something temporary or if it's now a permanent thing. Just an FYI for those who regularly monitor up in that area.

Update: PD has gone to full-time encryption. They're also Phase II on the Excelsior Springs site, fire is currently running Phase 1. Both PD/FD talkgroups are showing up as Phase 1 on the KCMO MARRS site.

It amazes me what P25 systems do. Automatically changing the phase to 1 or 2, based on surrounding sites. I think Phase 2 sounds different from Phase 1.

Phase 1 or 2 use is determined by the system and user radio configurations. It has nothing to do with neighbor sites.
I think Phase 2 sounds different from Phase 1.
There should be no difference in audio quality assuming all the user radios and consoles were configured the same. Phase 1 and 2 both use the same audio codec.
