I started this thread for all the updates for the new Miami Beach P25 Phase II system.
Does anybody "local" (or otherwise) know when the switch over will be made from the old Motorola Type II Smartnet?
I can tell you my MBFD brothers do not know.
APX8000 you got any word.
Thanks

Nope. It was supposed to happen a few months ago. The only talkgroups I show are City of Miami PD/FD main channels
and Hialeah on it so far when they intra-WACN roam over. Broward subscribers did not get the new P25 systems from the south on the first touch, but there are talks that both are getting each others interops channels. Miami-Dade (county admin and PD side) are still not playing nice in the sandbox but at least the Cities are talking.

For those of you with Unication G4/G5 pagers, I took the main PD/FD talkgroups from City of Miami and put them under on "System" I created called MIA/HIA/MB P25. Basically you throw ALL frequencies in for all three systems (remember Harris can roll to any for a control channel) and then since the WACN, RFSS and Site are all the same, you create a widcard FF for the system ID, but use the correct values for the others. Then create a Trunking TG-Scan zone and assign to a knob position and add the talkgroups. Now as you drive around, you'll automatically roam to all three systems based upon where you are.

As of August 19th, 2021 the latest rumor is OCTOBER / NOVEMBER 2021 for the switch over ..this could obviously change again as it has so many times already.

this system appears to have at least some activity on it. I am only down for a short visit today. 1603 and 1607 seem to be the predominant talkgroups that are active.

Maybe they just don't want to take any risks with people having coronaries over the Thanksgiving weekend and the radios not working with nobody around to fix them.
