Apologies if I'm behind the 8-ball but I just noticed Channel Sierra has made the switch to AES-256 encryption with the new KID 0x2000

It appears the consoles are still TXing with the old DES-OFB algo but I expect that will change soon, they're probably just tidying-up the stragglers?

Yep entire state switched over this morning to allow AES 256 encryption. Consoles will switch over in a few weeks to allow any units to be upgraded that missed the radio techs. There were also a few other changes, entire state got a new channel plan and renumbering and a few dispatch channels got renamed.

I'm curious why ACMA is showing all VKG licences expire on 01/Jul/2022. No matter when they came into effect, they all expire on that date.

As far as I can see the GRN is nowhere near ready (read: up to their standards) so it can't be that. Maybe it's just a Telco thing and all the licences are getting transferred or something?

For administration purposes a lot of government agencies have a common expiry date. Renewals are more or less automatic and budgets organised to suit.
