I was in the Asheville area this weekend and ran DSD+ on the Buncombe County P25 system.

This thread from a couple of years ago questioned Phase I vs Phase II. Based on my monitoring, it's all still Phase I FDMA transmissions.

I had marginal reception of the East Simulcast site from my location so I only monitored it long enough to pick up the control channels and site details but didn't pick up all of the voice frequencies. But the most interesting thing I noted was that Site 1.3 Courthouse was not listed as a neighbor site by either East or West sites. It's as if it's not even there. Curious. Anyway, here's the P25 data DSD+ logged on the system.

Site 3 only carries traffic for the jail talkgroups and to my knowledge that is the only place carries any TDMA traffic since it's only a 2 or 3 channel site.

Since other county TGs don't roam from the simulcast sites to the jail and the jail TGs don't roam to the simulcasts I suppose they don't have adjacent sites provisioned to avoid radios from constantly trying to roam off and get rejected.
