From a spectrum effeicency standpoint, I couldn't agree more, P25 Phase 2 is certainly the way to go! Looks like I'll need to start saving some penny's and go ahead and make a long range plan to replace my current Phase 1 fleet!!!
Now to figure out what the VHF-Hi band P25 plan is!!!! Backup?, Comm Center point to point?, Federal Interop???
Staying tuned for futher!!!
Not from a normal day to day operations stand point, but the same folks that sign the 800mhz licenses also are signing the license that shows the emission modification for VHF to include both NFM and P25. In other words managed in-house by the same folks and would "more than likely" have the same user base!There is no VHF currently on the VIPER, it is 700/800.
It happened sometime between Thurs 4/9 and Sun 4/12,Viper was not Simulcast on Davie fire before that. I was out of town when the switch happened.I heard Davie County Fire Dispatch on their VIPER Talkgroup. I believe It was a simulcast of their VHF channel. I'm not sure how long they have been using the VIPER TG, but this was the first time I have heard it in use.
You do hopefully realize that just because you update the Main HP Database does notNot sure if this is the right place to post, but I just updated the 436HP and noticed the Southern Pines CC info is not updated to reflect the 700 MHz CC listed in the database. I think these were changed back in January and are correctly listed in the RR Database.
You are somewhat close but no cigarThis morning, I was monitoring VIPER off the Franklin Water Tower site, which I can see about 1/2 mile from my house, and discovered a three-way conversation on TG 52055. Base on the subject being discussed, which I won't disclose, I'm 99% certain this is a State Fire Marshal TG. The TG number is in sequence with their identified TGs.
