Default Clifton Park Highway

Can anyone tell me there frequency? I have a SDS100 with the DMR upgrade. Nothing heard on 154.860.
Here's an old post from 2013,
I believe it is being used by the highway department. Clifton Park Highway used to be on 151.025, however, with Warren County using 151.025 for Fire Control I think they were getting blown off the channel. So, new frequency, new digital modulation. 154.860 is the new channel. I don't have a way to monitor DMR so I can't 100% confirm its the Highway Department but it would be my best guess.

I looked at the FCC ULS database. They have licenses on 151.025 as a base, 154.860 as a repeater/mobile and 159.165 as mobile (probably the repeater input).
The 154.860 repeater is licensed to Castle Pines off Kinns (I believe it's a water tank).
The license is only for analog, but it wouldn't be the first time someone runs DMR on an analog frequency.

It's also possible they migrated to an area DMR trunked system (rented time).

Also check the old Town Security frequency (453.050), and 453.950 which they have an expired license for but I don't know it was ever used.

453.950 is part of Hudson Valley Community College's LTR system.

159.165/123.0 has been reported as Columbia County Highway.
