Hey all,

I often monitor Western New York from across the lake in the GTA. I was wondering if there is any P25 in the clear that could be monitored. I often recieve Niagara, Erie, Orleans and sometimes Monroe Counties from my house in Mississauga.

From what i understand, Orleans couny was planning on going P25..

It will probably be a while before anything changes in Orleans County. They have more cows than people, and cows don't pay taxes.

There might be some federal government P25 activity, and the major power utilities are switching to P25 as well.

The Border Patrol and DEA frequently use clear P25. I have heard P25 on some of Buffalo's PD freqs, but only rarely unencrypted.
