I'm not sure the analog is even still on the air. And since they transitioned a few years ago, not sure anything worth hearing would be on the old analog anyway.

I would have thought exactly the same, based on the information in the database. I went to Finley Stadium for a few hours Thursday evening, and took along TRX-1. I could receive almost constant traffic on the analog system, using attenuation, but with lots of cellular noise. Without attenuation, analog system was silent. TACN was utterly silent, with or without attenuation. I get the same result in the Hamilton Place area, with its abundance of cell towers. Whenever I get away from the cell towers, I get good TACN reception.

The Analog Trunked system is still on Air and there's still plenty of traffic on it. A lot of the public safety dispatch channels are patched between the old and new system.

Use which ever system you want to hear. The lagacy analog system is strapped to the newer P25 system, as most agencies still use a mix of radios either operating analog or digital. They have been simulcast with each other for about ten years now.
But the P25 system has the surrounding counties including Georgia.
