This morning around 0540 and still going on as of 0556 was picking up a control channel noises on MD Rins 3. I was only picking up 1 to 2 bars on the antenna so its a distant signal by my antenna readings. I tried to listen to it in both analog and P25 even tho MD Rins is FM Analog. When I had it on the digital mode I did not pick it up as much as it did not break my squelch on my radio. I am using a EFJohnson 5300 ES to monitor Montgomery County Smartzone system with a lighted remote control head. I wonder if it could be some "skip" that my radio is picking up from a different state???I went back and did some research on the Rins 3 frequency. It seems its also part of the New Castle DE trunked system as well. That would place the antenna over 100 air miles from my home here in Aspen Hill Md area plus its also used by Montgomery both by the fire dept and police as a talk around as well.
