• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

The RRDB is precisely where that list comes from, and because of that, the list has never and will never be completely accurate.

There is also a bit of misinterpretation of the RRDB data going on in that document, as well as some misleading presentation of the data. For example, they have lumped numerous Motorola 3600 (aka Type II) systems that feature P25 CAI talkgroups into the mix. Those are not true P25 systems.

I believe you need to be a premium member to view this report, but here is the list of all P25 trunked systems in the RRDB (may as well go right to the source, right?):


Alternate link if you only want to see Phase II capable systems:

You've just discovered another flaw with that list; they apparently don't remove deprecated systems.

They still show the Colonie, NY system on the list. That was folded into the Albany County system two years ago. :cautious:

Fauquier/Culpeper/Rappahannock, VA is still a Motorola type II Smartzone system not P25 yet. They were going to Upgrade to P25 phase 2. I just read that the school system must migrate all of its radios before August because that is when the new P25 system is coming online in those jurisdictions.

Ohio MARCS-IP is listed as Phase 2 but it is Phase 1. The system is Phase 2 capable but this mode is not currently enabled. The system and sites will require software upgrades before this mode can be used and it will likely be some time before it becomes available.

I am surprised Culpeper and Fauquier are not using DMR like all the schools here in N. VA.

If ever. I'm betting on never due to the cost.

The last I heard Winston Salem/Forsyth County was still the only TRS that was Type II in North Carolina.

It is operating in both analog and digital modes.

VIPER goes Phase II over next few years, they just confirmed that recently. AWIN will be Phase II over next few years, as will SAFE-T. LWIN, still no set timeline to even mention on upgrading. IDPS here in Indy is working on upgrades to current version of ASTRO-25 and replacing pretty much all the radios, possibly also enabling Phase II to match the SAFE-T. No final word on that yet. MSWIN is supposed to be finished going almost pure Phase II by end of January 2020... But more likely 2021. TACN is beginning transition to pure Phase II, but this will take a couple of years at the least.

yeah, I wouldn't make decisions on the list details. ISICS in Iowa is the whole state all 99 counties, not the 2 they say. Starcom 21 in Illinois is 102 counties plus one in Iowa and one in Missouri. Both are Phase 2 capable.
