[Sticky] VIPER P25 Phase 2
A timeline has been issued for the upgrade to phase 2 P25 on the NC VIPER System.
It lays out a five year plane to transfer the system from phase 1 to phase 2.
What this means....
Well not much, it could bring a greater use of encrypted traffic on the system but hopefully not.
It also means that over the next 5 years those of us who purchase scanners should be looking to upgrade to a phase 2 scanner If you haven't already.
Sadly this also limits
the use of Software Defined Radios that will work with
Phase 2 systems. Hopefully
over the next 5 years as
this happens more SDRs
will make Phase 2 possible.
