Is this system gonna have all the same freqs and stuff so all you have to do is program it in to the scanner now or does it all change???
Do you know if this will cover all the city agencies and if South Portland is in on this as well?
Yes, the entire Motorola Portland metro system and all of it's users will eventually move to the p25 system. The Motorola system will remain up for some time after the initial transition and will be patched with the p25 system until everyone transitions.
I'm intown during the week for work and will keep my ears open. My search time is limited, but I will poke around when I can.
