I was back home this week for a funeral and my cousin told me about the City PD going to 800. He said that there was a grant to allow for the upgrade from the UHF frequencies that they are currently using. Does anyone have the talkgroup info or know if they will be encrypted?

Thanks,
Scott

I don't think this will happen real soon. The grant only covered 5 total radios. They'll need at least 100 radios if they equip cars with mobiles and officers with WTs. That along with the monthly access fees seems to be a significant cost to make up.

I believe the City supervisors have the new 800 radios and expect to use them for interop with the Sheriff's Office. I haven't heard them used yet,

Yep, that's what he said. I was just curious if anyone has marked the TG as I am out of state.
