It depends on your location. Some areas have switched to P-25, some are still analog and some are mixed analog and P-25. Encryption is per radio, so that can vary from transmission to transmission.fireandems13669 said:Does anyone know if the 163.62500 RM BorderPatrol Border Patrol freq is standard p25 or if it is also secure
I listen to the Border Patrol out of Buffalo NY AND most of the traffic is p25 and no encryption, but they can go encrypted any time they want to turn it on, but most of the time encryption is off.fireandems13669 said:Does anyone know if the 163.62500 RM BorderPatrol Border Patrol freq is standard p25 or if it is also secure
Same thing / freqs / tones in Mobile, Al. However, other feds here have migrated to P25. CBP seems like one of the last to move.lost_in_maine said:I am in Northwest Maine, 50 miles from Quebec, and I hear 163.625 pl 100.0 in the clear here daily, I Have never heard P25 or any encryption used
