AEGIS is digital voice, the forerunner to ProVoice. Like Provoice and P25, AEGIS can be encrypted but isn't automatically encrypted.

The voice quality is shit, however. Save up for an XTS!

Very cool. Any ideas on price yet?

Also, Kenwood released their TK-5170 VHF P25 mobile this week, with UHF to follow shortly. Damn reasonable prices (under $2K for advanced remote head, with programming software).

Don't believe everything you hear. Hamcom will not be held at ACC next year - that part's correct. Your "why" is wrong. The City of Arlington has preference (read: can bump events) on scheduling for the ACC. They came up with something that they wanted the convention center for, so Hamcom got bumped...

APCO25 is a standard - no royalties. *BUT*, APCO25 specifies the IMBE (improved multiband excitation) audio codec, which is owned by DVSI (Digital Voice Systems Inc.)
