    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I had heard a while back that Alabama would be implementing a 700mhz system. Looks like it will be 2012 before the first implementation deadline.

Did you see the Contact for the system? Motorola! At least it won't be ProVoice - it will probably be P-25 :)

every state was given a group of 700 MHz frequencies. They can use some or all or let cities and counties within the state use them. There is a 700 MHz plan under preperation at this time for Alabama.

man, when that happens, nearly the entire Gulf Coast will be able to seamlessly interop if implementations are done to do so !

it will be a great feeling for safety during large scale incidents :)

don't get too excited. the plan is not being done by the state, and can only assign frequencies to agencies within the state. those agencies have to come up with the money. it is the same people that wrote the 800 mhz plan. If you check the FCC site you will see the committee has not met in a year, here is the URL

Just yesterday I read a post-Katrina FCC paper (I can't find it now) that mentioned that mutual aid channels are being implemented in all bands (VHF, 700, 800) etc for interop.

It also said (and its the first time I had read it - though I don't get out much!) that a "lesson learned" from Katrina was that the Florida FHP and Wildlife officers who arrived in Harrison County MS (Biloxi area) shortly after Katrina were in fact able to seemlessly integrate into Harrison County TRS, and that in fact the Harrison system was one of the real success stories of Katrina communications - it never failed.
