There are no 500 MHz entries for that system in the RRDB because I haven't added them yet. Still trying to pin down some of the locations on Long Island and in Jersey.
You'd be surprised how far some of those UHF signals will travel when the band is open. I've gotten stuff from South Jersey/Delaware extremely clear in the NYC area at times, well enough for Unitrunker to decode at 85% or better.
Out of curiosity, when you were receiving the signal, was it intermittent or was it a constant control channel?
