P25 is starting to take over the Smartzone Omnilink.

They are currently testing out a few sites now, refer to the stickies at the top of the forum.

Its two systems that are one (confusing I know). VIPER is VIPER. Right now they are running it as a Motorola 4.1 system (3600baud). The P25 system is using Motorola 7.x system which is the 9600baud rate. They can overlay the two systems. So you can have 3600baud and 9600baud rates until such a time they can fully switch over to 9600baud for the entire state.

Yep. And considering the same folks are running the new system that run the legacy 3600 version VIPER (NCSHP) and no one has come up with a snappy name or acronym for the new system we have to
use what is currently provided. But feel free to pass your suggestions on how the new system should be named onto the the nice folks over at SHP C&L & TSU. :)

does the change over mean encryption will be easier?

Encryption has always been an option...and is used when needed. No difference as far as that goes between the 2 systems.

There will be changes as far as TGIDs go as the system progresses in 2012 but have no fear that the VIPER listings here at RR.com will continue to be the best source for accurate & updated listings. :)

Have no fear the fun is just beginning :D
