I'm not hearing any Post 12 traffic today. Hmm... did they switch over to the new system?
No.

These systems don’t get build overnight. Scott County issued a RFP in January of 2018 and didn’t go live until January of 2020, that being only 5 select agencies, all Law Enforcement. Fire followed months later, mid/late 2020, and all public service agencies joined in 2021.

These systems are very complex, and, require weeks even months of development and testing for a single site. Covering the entire state in 7/800 sites is tricky.

Anyone been hearing KSP at the Kentucky State Fair this year? I haven't heard them on 154.92D as I have in previous years. . .

I monitored KSP all day yesterday and I never heard anything fair related, including last nights disturbance. If I remember correctly I think KSP used LMPD's encrypted radios during the riots. I wonder if this is the reason we can hear anything going on at the fair?

It looks like I may be coming up to the eastern KY area at some point later this year for business. I have skimmed through the 30 pages of this thread and I think I have a basic understanding of how KSP does things, but can someone school an outsider on this? Very different than our statewide and local trunked systems that we use.

If, for example, I am going to Boyd County/Ashland I ideally would want to program all of the B/A sites for Post 14 with 14B being dispatch and 14A being alternate? Could I probably get by with the just Ashland sites if I am only going to be in Ashland?

I see 453.300 $289 is "Tac 3" and specified as a car-car as well as Air-Ground, but I also see 460.250 $211 is listed as Air-Ground. Is there a name of that channel?

Are the VHF F1-F3 only programmed in portables or do they actually have VHF mobiles too? I know the extender frequency wouldn't be in a mobile but F2 and F3 as well as KLEEN and Intercity...

Would be nice to get ahold of an offical radio template and see how all this is actually programmed into the zones.

If you will be only in Ashland, then you can get away with just the Ashland tower A/B frequencies for Post 14.

453.300 does a lot of things. It is KSP tac channel on digital as well as a UHF mutual aid frequency. I've never heard anything on 460.250. I suspect its there for airborne speed enforcement, which is rarely if ever done.

VHF is portable only. They do have some fixed VHF repeaters, such as at the fairgrounds. Possibly mobile command posts for big incidents the could happen anywhere.

I'd say the RR database has KSP laid out as good as it gets.

I keep hearing "code 2000" being used. Can't seem to find out what it means here online. Anyone know? I know code 600 is mental.

Currently, I am hearing the KSP on 460.2375 MHz, in P25 mode loud and clear here in Michigan. Maybe someone can help locate, which Post I am hearing?

The patrol unit is out on Chloe Road by Walters Road, looking for a subject at a house. They said that the Sheriff had checked the girlfriend's house on Summit Drive, but her car was not at home. Any clue as to where this might be at in the Bluegrass State?

Anyone heard Post 11 in London lately? Haven't heard a peep from them in over two days.
