I have seen the frequency postings for city wide, but am wondering if anyone has any information as to what is is, and when it will be fully active? I have heard city wide on 464.25 getting set up on Concord Fire Alarm, so I know there is some activity. Is this going to be a radio network similar t...

with the radio on go to the channel you want the radio to power on to.

Manually turn the radio off and then on with the on/off/volume button.

The radio should then power up to that channel when the vehicle is turned on.

If all of the radios are changed to narrowband at the same time then they shouldn't notice the difference.

If they miss one and it still on wide band then that radio would come over louder on the other radios and vice versa the other radios would come over quieter on the wideband radio.

You have been misinformed. The narrowband mandate requires them to go to 12.5khz not 6.25 by 2013.

Must if not all of their current radios will do 12.5 by simply reprogramming them. I doubt you will see them spend the money to upgrade to an digital trunked system, but only time will tell.

From what I understand Channel 2 should also be digital by the end of this week, if not by the end of today.

If you’re talking about recently it's because they have been temporarily relocated while the dispatch center is renovated and they did not have access to areawides. Once they are back in Dispatch, each station has a radio dedicated to the areawide, so should help improve their responsiveness to test...

I'm not sure if there are different scanner aps. I use http://www.bbscanner.com/ on my nextel blackberry curve 8350 and it works great.

I did notice there is a 1 minute delay from a live scanner but other then that no volume issues.
