I agree, it would have been way cheaper to just stay on VHF and go to narrowband like we are, this way interoperability with anyone else goes out the window, I'm waiting for two things, 1. To see who gets screwed first and 2 to see how they plan to handle it during a disaster..oh well, they're problem..,they're mistake...

Well I guess I can listen to asp with the right scanner and cropdusters. By the way what would be a good scanner to listen to Arkansas state police on?

From what I have heard and then seen when the check is written, "secure digital" is NexEdge or MOTOTRBO without encryption enabled. They suffice it enough to just enable their digital protocol.

It will be digital encrypted NexEDGE with a special receve/transmit code needed to listen and no way to get it and the radio shop won't give.. I've already asked.

Brian, did they make the switch? If so, is it working Ok for them?
No, It's been pushed back until further notice.. Everyone is still on the old stuff, The Narrowbanding has been pushed back until further notice... NexEDGE will probably be completed about January... They're having trouble getting equipment in I've heard.. Nothing has changed as of now..

Does anybody know where the live feed for Arkansas State Police Troop C is located? I can't find one.

I'll post again when they are live.. When it comes down too it, That's all they'll be basically besides Greene Co. Rural FD's... Everything else will be NexEDGE and not heard at all... Therefore if I want to broadcast anything it'll be AWIN.. I'm not home at the moment but when I get home I have to hook the outdoor antenna up again and when I do that I'll be ready... Give me a couple weeks probably and I'll post again when it's up and let everyone know..
