    I think part of this Wayne is the technology is making better use of the spectrum by going digital thus allowing narrowband allocations down from 25khz spacing

      I think part of this Wayne is the technology is making better use of the spectrum by going digital thus allowing narrowband allocations down from 25khz spacing to as low as 6.25khz single voice path using TDMA techniques. The bitch is the proprietary encode/decode algorithms like Mototurbo or Provoice, which scanner manufactures like Uniden do not have rights to. So it's either Analog or APCO P25 for Public Service. For me when aircraft goes digital I will gut my radios and put blinking Xmas lights behind their displays...

        No matter what there will always be conventional analog comma. What really gets me is how many people are drawn away from listening to conventional analog just because their area "went digital". I am amazed by how much people here in Indiana miss because of it too. What no one seems to consider too is these digital systems tend to crash a lot. Well just because an area is digital don't toss out the non digital scanners! I still keep all my analog scanners going and its a good thing I do! Even ISP uses some of its low band stuff on occasion and I have heard things there that no one else did because they only listen to the statewide 800 system. During storms and the aftermath of storms having conventional is a must as SAFT gets too crowded and users get busy signals and go back to their analog systems. Even my own county still uses the old system and they do it pretty regularly either because the site went down or because they figure no ones listening to the old channels anymore. So just because everything appears digital doesn't mean there is nothing left on conventional.

          Police in Wagga are still using analogue. They are simulcasting on the
          analogue liaison TGID (10019 I think) as a precursor to switching over
          to digital. When they switch over, they will encrypt.
