Hello all,

Over the last several weeks I have been stumbling across what sounds to me like a DMR control channel. It is on 454.16875 MHz. and I've picked it up on at least two different receiver types from different locations. The signal is pretty strong in the Capital District area.

I could not find anything in the database for it. Couldn't find anything in the FCC database either.

I don't have the ability to monitor DMR, so I thought I would put it out there for anyone who can.

I don't believe it's a mobile phone system. Almost all of the Part 22 spectrum has been auctioned off in this area.

I expanded the search and found that Repeater Networks LLC has a Part 22 market license for 454.1625 - 454.1875 MHz. which covers a lot of the counties around the Capital District (but not specifically Albany-Schenectady-Rensselaer-Saratoga counties). Maybe this is being used by Goosetown as part of a MotoTrbo system? Or going way out on a limb, possibly a site to extend the One Voice Network into the Capital Region?

I really need to get off my rear end and set up DMR Decode...

Those old RCC (Part 22) channels, got auctioned off. And are licensed by Market vs Site, so there will NEVER be Lat/Lon to determine the actual site.

Think of Market like the TV/AM/FM - they cover a Market Area

Eastern Mass they are used by National Grid for their LTR

In CT Marcus bought a few of them.
454.1750 is one of them
Marcus Spectrum Holdings LTR - Connecticut - Scan New England Wiki

I've found searching them is best to use the Site/Market/Freq Query
and search based on the width of the allocation
454.1750 would be 454.1625 thru 454.1875

Search of MA Returns

Search of CT Returns

Search of VT Returns

Search of NY Returns

There are a lot of new DMR channels on UHF in the NY Capital District. They carry very little voice traffic, if any. I suspect the data being relayed are for mobile data dispatch and/or AVL systems.
