Worcester PD-FD

Post by W1KNE »

I received word that all of Worcester's talkgroups have transitioned from Phase 1/FDMA to Phase II/TDMA.

Can anyone who is closer confirm this, so we can update the wiki?

While I can't positively confirm this, I don't believe that to be true. Unless something has changed in the last month or two, there was no imminent plan to move the day to day operations channels to TDMA. TDMA is being used on anything encrypted and on most non-public safety talkgroups and as far as I've been told that is for the foreseeable future. There is still a large number of subscriber units in surrounding mutual aid communities and in the Fire District 7 radio cache that are not TDMA capable (aka XTL/XTS)

As of this morning I see no changes. All talkgroups which had been phase 1 are still showing up as the same.
