Just saw in the DB that KENCOM got a license for 154.4075, and it includes NFM analog and P25. I'm aware that law enforcement is upgrading to P25, so is it safe to presume that this new VHF frequency will be used by the fire departments?

Just read an update in the DB that states that it will be used as the new Fire Dispatch frequency. Has anyone heard any testing at all?

Per KenCom they will be switching soon to P25 (Fire 3) for fire departments within the next month or two. The final neighboring agency is in the process of signing the agreement and KenCom will switch over to it.

PD Radio programming is finazlized for OPD, KCSO, YPD, PPD. They are just waiting on MPDs radios to be programmed. As of now they will be recycling the old PD freqs as single-freq P25 channels to be used as they new dispatch channels. This should be up and running by the end of the year. P5 and P7 (Tac Channels) will go full encryted in the next month as the PD radios are also being programed for this as well.
