P25 COMPLIANCE NOTICE:  Onondaga County's Motorola ASTRO 25 Trunked Radio Network meets the P25 standards for a digital radio system.  Many manufacturers claim P25 compliant radios.  However, at this time, there is no independent certification process to verify compliance.  To ensure that all P25 radio manufacturers meet the standards and their radios will be interoperable, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), radio manufacturers and the emergency response community have created the P25 Compliance Assessment Program (CAP).  Radios that pass will be issued a P25 Supplier's Declaration of Compliance (SDoC).

Purchase of any P25 radios without the SDoC is discouraged.  Additionally, the current DHS SAFECOM Grant Guidance requires SDoCs for all radio equipment at the time of delivery.


The Onondaga County Department of Emergency Communications Radio Division has implemented a list of the minimum features required to operate on the OCICS Trunked Land Mobile Radio System.  This information needs to be considered when you make your purchase decision.  The need for multiple vendor sources of radios was an important element in the decision to implement this system however, informed purchase decisions by emergency responder agencies is required.  Any questions should be directed to the 911 Radio Division at 315-435-7911.
