Got the SDR working with the latest Unitrunker preview-beta. 771.59375 will barely decode but 143.16 comes in quite well - probably not a surprise. Interestingly enough 143.16 is now reporting RFSS-Site 247-247, still with a band plan that doesn't match its frequency (which may actually be on purpose IMO).

My chart says 40 should be Claresholm, a 4-channel site.

I show that frequency licensed for Claresholm as well. The sites seem to have a very good range.

The Claresholm tower site is at the intersection of Township 130 about 3/4 of a mile east of Range 271 (about 1 mi E of Hwy 2, north of the town). I'm not surprised you can get it back to Coalhurst. That's only 35 miles in relatively flat land, and I have picked up sites further than that here at my house which is in decidedly more hilly and treed terrain.

If you're making a trip to Calgary along the 2 or the 23, here are some you might want to check.

Fort Macleod: Range 262 and Township 93
772.45625
772.78125
773.04375
773.79375

Pincher Creek: Township 64A x Township 64 (SRD site)
771.40625

Burmis: Range Road 10 x Highway 3
770.63125
772.09375
772.34375
773.81875

Champion: Township 151 x Range 235
771.35625

Vulcan: Township 164 x Range 253 (about 2 miles W of town south of 534)
771.90625
772.54375
774.15625
774.79375

Arrowwood: In town of Arrowwood (if it's active, you should pick it up north of Nanton and lose it north of Okotoks)
772.58125

Lomond: Township 165 x Range 203
774.31875
771.95625
772.34375
774.91875

Buffalo Hills (we know this one is running): Township 192 x Range 234 - site 075-075
771.59375
773.05625
774.28125
774.59375

Nanton: in town of Nanton
770.59375
773.54375
774.55625
774.90625

High River: in town of High River
771.39375
771.69375
772.29375
772.79375
773.31875
774.04375
774.56875
774.81875

Turner Valley: in town of Turner Valley
771.14375
774.06875
774.39375
774.64375

Longview: in town of Longview
771.64375

Heading out to the blood reserve today. About 15 kms south of hwy 3 on 509. I've picked up 771.5937 Sid 005bh-7575. So I'm guessing that's the Nanton site.

Actually, that one is Buffalo Hills, in Vulcan county - Twp 192 x Range 234.

Nanton, if it were to show, should be site 44.

I'm seeing a very faint signal on my SDR waterfall this morning... slightly less signal than Cremona which is about 70km direct from me. The frequency I see isn't in any records I have from when the licenses were still being published.

771.68125 is the frequency in question. I can't determine if there is an actual CC there, but there is some kind of continuous signal. I don't think it's an image on the SDR because they tend to lose strength as you tune around, and this remains constant.

I can pick up Bassano at 771.33125 and Rockyford at 771.64375 (I'm presuming it's them; the frequencies match my data but I don't have enough signal strength to decode), and the "other" signal is about half that strength.

Nope, but that's impressive from Fort Macleod. System 16E (P25 systems only use three digits) is Montana's statewide system. Site 001-017 is Divide Mountain in Glacier County. It's about 35 miles S of Cardston.

MT doesn't have many sites in the far north of their state. Population, let alone cell or radio coverage, is few and far between. They also have some pretty slick documents and applications available to the public on their government website, the Public Safety Communications Bureau:

mt.gov - Montana's Official State Website (the main page)

mt.gov - Montana's Official State Website (home page for the public safety communications network)

http://www.arcgis.com/apps/Legend/ma...9cc982c3785f40 (a map of the entire radio system and its current status)

On that first page they also have a number of links to things like their statewide mutual aid/common frequencies manual.

I've finally got my good antenna mounted on the truck so I'll be able to do a road trip sometime soon.

Just on the AFRRCS gov't site - all the options previously on tabs have disappeared (updates etc) and found this quote near the bottom of the page "The first towers will be built in 2014, with the system being completed in 2015.".......
