All,
I have been hearing P25 voice on 155.955 (Franklin SO) & 154.725 (Killen PD). Can anyone confirm frequencies and NACs? I only caught a couple of transmissions on Franklin SO & just the tail end of a conversation on Killen PD this past weekend. I am about 60 miles away from both so I can only monitor late in the evenings and have no way to decode NACs. I have noticed in the past when I'm in the area that the simulcast of Killen units on the conventional analog frequency of 460.2125 sounded a little digital like.

For the SO I monitor 2 freqs what I call Lauderdale Co W 155.2500 and Lauderdale Co E 154.84500.
The W is dispatch only for the LA SO.
E includes dispatch for LASO on the east side of the county, Killen, Rogersville, and St Florian.

I do not monitor Franklin SO but have heard some digital transmissions that are unknown.
I'll monitor the above-listed freqs to see if I can hear anything.

Last I heard, Franklin County law enforcement still had a large amount of non-P25 radios, and had no immediate plans to convert to P25. I listened to them yesterday and they were still operating on analog. Are you sure you weren't hearing Hanceville PD? (155.955, $220 NAC)

During the short amount of time I was able to listen this morning, I didn't hear any traffic on the Lauderdale County law channels, however just a few days ago they were operating on analog. Killen PD and I believe a few other agencies in the county are using TangoTango PoC devices, with a gateway to their VHF system. When talking on TangoTango, the audio quality definitely has a "digital" sound quality. Note that Cullman County EMS has been using P25 on 154.725 ($420) for years. Is it possible you were hearing them?

Thanks for the response, it very well may be those I'm hearing. I'll have to listen again soon and see if I hear some locations.

In Lauderdale County, the dispatch appears to use cell phone direct communication with officers during slow call times. The radio traffic increases with high call volume.

I feel its going to be a long while for Lawrence County also. You almost feel sorry for them and those poor walkies.
