I have basically no experience with DMR, but I am planning on either setting up DSD+ or getting the DMR update for my 436HP.

But anyhow, using my conventional scanner, if I am understanding things right, there seems to be a two-channel DMR TRBO system at the Clemmons Novant Health hospital.

I am hearing the two-second rest channel "data bursts" on 463.400 and traffic on 463.5375. It seems that those are the only two frequencies used for the system according to their FCC license: https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?fccCallsign=WQRU793

That's all the info I have as I have no clue how to map out a DMR system... I need to get some experience in that department :)

I believe you are hearing UNC-Pembroke, I’ve heard it before passing through Robeson County. One of their talkgroups appears to be a patch to Robeson Sheriff. Their system also uses a 453 MHz frequency that I can’t recall right off. I’ll try and post it later.

Getting a fairly strong CON+ control channel on 152.0525 and I can't find anything anywhere on the FCC ULS for anyone using that frequency anywhere near hear. Any ideas?

DSD+ is showing:

Current Network: 2016
Current Site: 2016-35
Con+ DCC: 13


Also getting a weak DMR CAP+ signal on 153.2975 with a DCC 9.... not sure where that is coming from either although I haven't dug around too much on this one yet.

Unknown hit on 153.2975 MHz (or somewhere close to that frequency) from here in Forsyth County. It is showing DMR, CC 9, Slot 2. Voice transmissions thus far have been encrypted and is showing TG 910047.

Got two more unknown DMR hits heard from Western Forsyth County:

452.225 CC=5 SL=1 TG=? -- Mostly weak and garbled so all I got was "Bathroom door is open"

451.9875 CC=8 SL=1 TG=4000 -- Possibly licensed to Piedmont International University? Not sure if that's who it is though. Some transmissions were garbled, but I heard some stuff along the lines of "airlock" "we're on 122" and "still trying to change down that control power"

Well, it seems that the aforementioned 152.0525 is part of this system: https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=8561

The CC is listed, but just as "site 35." Anyone know where this site is, voice frequencies, users, etc?
This system was started in Charlotte by Two-Way Radio of Carolina. It was for the Charlotte/Meck school system buses but has grown to a larger network. I was able to pick up that site frequency from a high point in Fort Mill SC. Haven't had a chance to do any further investigation of it.

If there’s any DMR sites in Catawba or Lincoln County I’d be glad to help map out the sites & Talkgroup ID’s for you guys. I’m pretty knowledgeable of using it since I have my own nation-wide DMR Talkgroup on the BrandMeister Ham network & have used it before back home at my old Department & have gotten some of my Firefighters at my station into using DMR now. Also, I have DSD+ but I run multiple instances of UniTrunker daily on VIPER towers cuz I’m trying to map out Lincoln county’s new system since they just started using VIPER a few weeks ago. I’ve already found a slew of new talkgroups including several encrypted ones. I could always add 1 more SDR Dongle for a DMR system just point me to where I need to look...

Picked up a CAP+ system licensed to Cone Health Hospital in Greensboro, NC. This is the information I pulled:

464.700 MHz TG 2; CC ?; CAP+


Seems to be a multi-site system with an application for another site and more frequencies pending: ULS License - Industrial/Business Pool, Trunked License - WQVQ701 - CONE HEALTH

Also got another CAP+ system, maybe used by International Home Furnishings? (ULS License - Industrial/Business Pool, Conventional License - KYT689 - INTERNATIONAL HOME FURNISHINGS CENTER INC):

463.425 MHz CC 1; CAP+

In addition to those, I confirmed and submitted:

462.1125 TG 1; CC 5; DMR -- FedEx Distribution Center
462.1875 TG 1; CC 1; DMR -- PTI Airport: Airline Ground Support
