listening near Bennett Spring. I have a couple of VHF channels that seem to have gone digital even though the database still has them analog. The first is Sunrise Beach PD, 151.295 and the other is Polk Co Sheriff, 155.490.

Not sure what is up for Polk Co but there is a listing for Sunrise's free as MOSWIN but I did not see what site.

Anyone have an idea for both?

Thanks.

155.49 has been NXDN for at least a year. RAN 10, no talkgroups, but the Radio/Unit IDs are in the low #s - RID #1 is "Central" (dispatch), up to RID 25, with also some 3xx and 6xx RIDs. I thought I had submitted the change from last time I drove by but apparently not. I do hear it occasionally in Joplin.

Then,
151.295 cc5
155.4
159.375
seem to be part of a DMR system with Slot 2 cc4, using several TGs: 102021, 103031 (encrypted) 402021 & 402022 all sharing RIDs across the TGs and freqs with Memorial Hospital part of it. Have not deciphered!

Do you have a DMR scanner with you?
If so, see if you can hear Sunrise Beach in DMR mode like @wbloss mentioned.

I was able to use my SDS100 with the full database on and in SEARCH mode to find a signal for Polk Co that seemed to be all digital. 155.490 was digital and very broken from Bennett Spring in Laclede Co. Was unable to verify any specifics otherwise. However, twice I did see an EMS channel show up on the screen for Polk Co without audio that had a color code of 7. Not 100% sure to all of this but I hope it helps.
