Anyone have info on new digital (encrypted) system being installed in Garland TX? What models of scanners will scan the new system?

Since the new system will be 'encrypted' then you can forget about listening to it all. No scanner will ever be able to monitor encrypted radio transmissions. That would defeat the whole point of encryption in the first place.

Chris,
Have you heard whether both PD and FD will be encryoted (ala Houston), or only the police talkgroups.

wrc_radio,
The new system will be P25 Phase II,. Garland & Mesquire will both be on the new system once it's fully operational (I have not seen a specific timeline for when).

I actually have no idea. The only thing I know is I remember reading something here in the forums a while back stating that the new system would be encrypted. Now as to whether or not it's PD only or if everything will be encrypted, that remains to be seen. I do not have any further insight or knowledge on this system other than what's been previously posted.

Thanks Chris

I guess we'll all have to wait & see what Garland, and their current users (Rowlett & Sachse) do, as well as Mesquite.
