Went to Ft. Pierce this morning. Only thing I heard in the clear was the dogcatcher. 436 was muting P25 Phase 1 encryption like crazy. Didn't see any Phase 2. SLFD was still on the analog system.no one really knows if they went to encryption or just changed the talkgroup ID's and thats why we cant hear them because there is no ID list to put into the scanner. Someone i talk to down there on facebook said he needed a phase 2 scanner to pick them up, so i guess we will see in due time
Drove through Martin and St Lucie County today (Sat 9/2). All St Lucie County P25 traffic heard was encrypted. F/R is still on the old system. Received the St Lucie part of the system with a G5 from Stuart to the Fort Drum service plaza.
Also, in past drives I have locked onto the Martin part of the P25 system, using RRDB info, but have never heard any transmissions. Today, radio (unication G5) was constantly "out of range" and never locked onto the system. Appears they have either changed control channel or have the system shut down.
Hopefully they wont go encrypted if and when they go to the new system and i wAs in indian river county last wek for vacation and monitored the fire and ems and was very busy down there with incidentsMartin County Sheriff's Department and other Law in county
are active on the new system..All LEO scrambled. the old LEO system went dark.
I know that Martin fire was changing radio equipment last week, but are operating on the old system yet.
hoping fire stays in the open.
St lucie fire still operating analog, old system.
