Does anyone happen to know the FPS for the state of AZ’s frequencies ?
I searched and the only thing that comes up is basically every area they cover BUT Arizona. ( I noticed they are mostly UHF P25 )
And I believe that they've gone encrypted in Phoenix.
They used to be widely heard around the Valley. I could easily hear them here in Peoria. Now, not so much. Either they had a repeater atop one of the mountains around the Valley, or one of the taller buildings downtown, but moved it to a much lower location, or they otherwise modified it to significantly reduce the footprint. (Lower output power, lower gain antenna, etc.)
And the one time recently that I may have caught a snippet of one of their transmissions, it sounded like it was encrypted.
Up in Region 10, they are pretty well encrypted full time, but I occasionally hear one field unit in the clear, never the MegaCenter. And yes, both Tucson and Phoenix were not real busy. It took me forever to catch them active to confirm their NAC.All depends on the Console/Operator [for the MegaCenter]
and then time-of day, for the Local Control
Region 1 varies from ENC to CLR - no pattern observed.
