Hello, I'm from Nassau and I am in a VFD, I started off a few years ago with a BC355C.... then with narrowbanding I "upgraded" to the BC355N, now I want something with alpha tagging. I generally listen to the ncpd 2/8 and 3/6 simulcast, most of the county's fire freq's and trooper dispatch and very rarely some FDNY. Once ncpd stops the simulcast of course no one can listen, digital or not so at this point there is nothing at all that I listen to that is digital, however, if firecom has plans to go digital (assuming un encrypted) with in the next two years or so I would not hesitate to get the BCD996XT over the 15x. Any advice and insight into whether or not FC will stay analog would also be a great help. Thanks!
