Sounds like Chattanooga must be simulcasting on 800 and perhaps the digital 700 given the way the audio sounds.
All Bradley County (Cleveland included) agencies has switched to the TVRTS. They are using the conventional frequencies as a back up, and from what I understand some of the fire departments are using the conventional freqs as a fire ground channel when they are on the scenes of fires.
Cleveland PD made the switch about a year ago to the TVRTS full time and has since completely quit using the VHF conventional freq 154.785.
Can't answer the question as to Charleston, since I don't travel that way as much as I used to. I do know that I can hear a lot of Bradley and Hamilton traffic in Knoxville area now that they have switched over.
