Digital Network

Now active in most areas of Auckland

The P25 implementation for NZ Police in the ESB (VHF138 - 144 MHz) and ESC (UHF494 - 502 MHz) bands includes a AES encryption layer securing the radio network from unauthorized monitoring. Although modern digital scanners are able to DECODE these signals, they are unable to DECRYPT them.
