Not answering your question, but be advised that Carrollton is on the below system..Is there a good place to get a Uniden BCT15X programed near Carrollton, TX ?
To add to Kevin's comment, just about the public safety agencies in the DFW Metro area are using digital systems. The only major exception is Dallas (city as well as county) which for now, are still using analog systems. However, they are in the stages of building a P25 Phase II system of their own.
No real idea. I have no contacts at either the city or county level that might be able to let me know where they are in the process. Original switchover date was supposed to be this fall, but I'd guess you need to add a year or more to that. I haven't seen bid requests for construction of sites or other infrastructure show up in the legal notices. Nor have I seen any applications for new licenses or modifications to existing licenses to add the emission codes for the system.Any idea when they plan to go live with it?
.I got the BCT15X for fathers day and it looks like my kid should have done more research on scanners. Looks like it is soon to be useless. uniden said they don't want it back and used the Covid-19 contamination excuse. No more uniden products in my house.
Collin County is in the process of bringing a P25 Phase II system online in the next few months (current contract date is for handover on August 31 - and even now there's an open carrier on what will presumably be the control channel at each of the simulcast sites, just waiting for the link back to the controller to be activated), so the existing Motorola system will be fading out as users are migrated over.You can monitor Collin County just fine with it too.
