Misc System Information

This is the city of Philadelphia's new Project-25 Phase II TDMA capable trunked radio system which will replace the current 3600 Baud Motorola SmartZone system that has been in use since the late 1990's. 

As this system begins to take shape, expect to see many changes in the way radio traffic is handled in the city.  It is also anticipated that there will be a wide-spread use of encryption thoughout the public-safety agencies...

This system is being installed on the 7.11 platform, with the ability for Project-25 Phase II TDMA operation; however, until all radios have been replaced throughout the city, it is likely this system will remain a standard Project-25 Phase I FDMA system, at least for the immediate future.

Current radios being used throughout the city are Motorola ASTRO XTS3000's; however, many of these have or are being replaced with Motorola XTS5000 series radios in order to support 9600 Baud trunking and the 700/800MHz. bands.
