Just because it's "old", and was in use by one agency, doesn't preclude the possibility that it is in use once again by a different entity.

A couple years or so ago, my office (federal LE) inherited some old portables from a completely different agency whose mission is nothing like ours. I do not know specifically how or why they arrived. They were not reprogrammed, so we used them only on simplex, which was of course the old user's frequencies. A knowledgeable hobbyist monitoring in the area probably would not have known what they were hearing.
