Rockland PD

Rockland Police has made the switch to P-25 on 453.7375 $871 (871 is the telephone exchange)
They are also going to be dispatched by Holbrook along with the FD starting tomorrow I, believe is the date.
Dispatch is using a 4 digit UID, cruiser UID's appear to follow the cruiser numbers

I programmed the new Rockland P-25 frequency in my 996P2, and lo and behold, I'm receiving it almost as if it's a local! Been hearing it now for 3 days and my question is this. Does a P-25 frequency travel farther than a typical analog frequency? I have noticed this with a few different P-25 frequencies in the past.

There is a lot that goes into it, but the short answer is yes. A very weak P25 signal will still sound like it is next door, while an analog signal will get scratchy and won't be readable.
