WHAT IS P25 Phase 2?
AURORA'S NEW RADIO SYSTEM

Metro Denver Scanner Buyer's Guide     Updated December, 2017

BEST for Metro Denver

Many radio systems in Metro Denver are, or will be P25 Phase 2 capable. AURORA IS NOW PHASE 2, BUT ALL POLICE CHANNELS ARE ENCRYPTED!  Scanners below ARE Phase 2 (and Phase 1) capable.  They will work now, and when Phase 2 is activated.

GOOD  (no P25 Phase 2)

These scanners will work for now, until Phase 2 is activated, but will NOT receive the new Aurora P25 Phase 2 system! 


Radio systems using Phase 2 will not be monitorable with these scanners when Phase 2 is activated.  


WILL NOT RECEIVE THE NEW AURORA SYSTEM.
