    Default Digital vs. Analog

    I'm just curious. How do you tell if your State LEO is using digital vs. analog?

    I looked at RadioReference.com in the database but I don't know what to look for.

    Can someone help me out?

    Thanks,

    NE uses low VHF and UHF...analog system not even trunked

    CO uses high VHF....analog

    IA uses high VHF...analog

    MO uses high and low VHF and UHF....analog

    MN uses high VHF...analog


    Generally speaking if the frequenies are in 800Mhz it's either trunked or digital

    Rumor has it that we will soon be going digital but i think it is going to take longer than most people think...Just get a trunking scanner and you should be good

    Digital way more expensive than analog, obviously... Ontario is mostly, if not all, digital... tax in Ontario is 15%... just an out-of-the-blue comment on how high taxes help enforcement agencies buy expensive technology :roll:

    Minnesota is starting to implement a digital system. Digital is the wave of the future. Homeland Security grants are making this possible and it's happening fast.

    The digital systems are having a lot of growing pains. If I was a LEO I would not want to trust my life to a digital system just yet. Too many "dead spots" where there is no radio coverage. The one nice thing about digital is that there is no static in the system. But marginal signals will simply not be heard rather than being heard with some noise.
