I've been seeing a few people submit to the database that MERA is an all digital trunked system. This is untrue. It may seem like it is as a majority of the traffic is digital but the system is setup for both digital and analog operation. The system announces this as so. The analog talkgroups are the ones low in number (e.g., 16, 48, 80, etc). In order to do data on a talkgroup like that you have to set the talkgroup up for analog operation as it won't work in digital; IMBE digital is designed for human voice.
