This is the city system and it will be encrypted so we will be unable to monitor. As the systems comes up I understand a bridge will tie the existing and new systems together so we will be able to continue to monitor. Houston County wll not be on this system at the present time. The will have portables so they can communicate with the city during special circumstances.
It is a sad shame that Dothan will encrypt.
Wayne, at this time do you know if it will be total encryption or just Public Safety?
When it happens, I will miss being able to hear Dothan when I am in th area.
I'm not sure, but will ask. All city departments will eventually be on the system. Interesting that I found out that their southern lincs are tied to their old system and will be tied to the new system also. The fire department monitors dispatch on their lincs.
