That is how it is in East TN. There is not a lot of spectrum available for VHF and repeater owners are not moving to DMR from analog.

BUT there is a lot of spectrum available for UHF, and since most radios are either VHF or UHF, and not dual band, most repeater owners have installed UHF DMR repeaters so their Radio’s work for many DMR repeaters in the region.

The only exception is the KD4CWB VHF DMR repeater. In addition to the UHF repeater he has, he also installed a VHF repeater in the Sevier County area, which from what I hear, has great a great coverage area!
