As confirmed by two sources today, the county and city are working on the Harris system buildout. New system has several new sites including w main st (Norfolk southern tower) pictured, and sugar loaf mtn in Nelson county. Friend of mine at fan mtn observatory says “I’ve lost count how many times the tower crew has been here.” Tower climbers at w main st appeared to be working on either the antenna or something hardware related when I saw them today.
Fcc licenses show wrdl 461, wqec 203, wrfh 243. Each with roughly 10 frequencies per site. Simulcast for carters, w main st and one other. Different set of frequencies for more rural area.

Wonder the reasoning for the Sugar Loaf site?

I am receiving a signal today from both w main st (ns tower) and carters mtn tower for the new system! P25 nac is: 155h. No talkgroups are showing up yet or any other id’s. I tried to upload a pic, but apparently image is too big.

Can you run Unitrunker or pro96com and advise the System ID, WACN, Channel ID Table, and frequency list that it is reporting?

Thanks!

I have already tried with my psr 600 and could not get unitrunker or pro96com to work. But I am probably not doing something right. Any help would be appreciated!

I haven't tried this myself but "The SDS-100 can be used in Unitrunker as the Voice (Control) Scanner.
Just select BCD536HP for Receiver."

Would multiple licenses mean multiple sites in this case?
Yes there are multiples sites. It wouldn’t always necessarily mean that, I don’t think?!
Also, I was able to tell when I looked at the frequencies and the sites, that this will definitely be a simulcast system. I’m just not sure how to put it into my scanner. For now, I have put all sites into my sds100 and 200.
