I fixed this. When I start Unitrunker it always shows 1F9 delegated to FFF-FFFFFF. I have to manually select 1F9 and delegate it to 1F8 before I decode anything on either system. That makes Unitrunker behave properly but for some reason it won't save it.
At one point in my life I understood the delegation stuff (I think I remember using it on the Ohio MARCS system back when it was type II). I forgot how/when to use it though and just don't understand why it is even necessary. P25 systems give out a tremendous amount of information, and I think enough info is given out on the control channel that UT should be able to determine everything without delegation. Just my thoughts on it. I haven't used UT in years though.

If anyone wonders what was changed in the DB for the AEP P25 system that may have caused your county to go green, it was an inconsequential change. Basically on the main RR db page I changed "various" under cities to "Various" -- yeah a capital V. And I had briefly changed the name of the system from "American Electric Power P25" to "American Electric Power (AEP) P25". However, I changed it back because I wasn't prepared to have to go through and edit all of hte wiki links. I will be eventually changing the name to include "(P25)" in the name, but i'll do that when i have time to go through the wiki and modify the appropriate links.

Good band opening to the north right now.
I can decode site 22 Elk City & 27 Hinton.
There was some activity on 22 and I added the TGs to the wiki.

Confirmed site 9 Ft. Cobb really exists. All I could get was the CC 854.7125 NAC 009 with old DSD+. Not strong enough for Unitrunker.

Thanks, Tom. Great work with Fort Cobb. That has been an oustanding ? for some time. Glad to see it filled in completely.

I got a full decode on 1F9-009-009 Fort Cobb, OK and submitted an update. It was showing
854.7125C
855.1375A
855.3625A

Also I got it's neghbor 24 miles to the north 027-027 Hinton for the first time. It was showing
855.1375C
855.7625A
857.4125A

This is another case where some frequencies don't match with FCC licenses.

Yep, that is definitely an odd one -- not only is 855.1375 not part of the Hinton site license, BUT it is currently advertised as an alternate CC on Fort Cobb (a direct neighbor of Hinton). Either somebody fat-fingered things when setting up, or the stole a freq from a neighboring site for some other reason. Who knows. But IF fort Cobb actually could switch to 855.1375, that would likely present a problem for roamers between Fort Cobb and Hinton.

This TG is under AEP Ohio but I logged it on one of the Oklahoma sites.
2701 a8d TTECH 2701System technicians Utilities

It's probably systemwide then.There probably needs to be a systemwide subcategory.

I moved it back to the Radio Maintenance cat, which is a systemwide cat.

Next to a scanner...
The Abilene 55-55 was decoded mid-August while driving nearby there - sorry if it didn't stay there! I occasionally go through that area and try to run dsd while around there, but it was a one-time decode and check.

Also on the Hinton, OK site...it seems many years ago on the EDACS system that their frequencies didn't exactly line up with the FCC license I found back then...I had a difficult time trying to work on that one.

The band has been open here a lot lately also but I haven't found anything new yet until maybe this morning.
Today there is either a new site or CC rotation and another CC on 857.2875 appears to be wiping out 104 Woodson TX. That's also one fo the freqs used in Abilene so maybe it came back or never left because Wooson was always stonger here.
