Based on my very little knowledge of DMR.. it appears that MOT likes to pitch the "scanners can't pick it up so you should buy it" sales pitch. Between "privacy" and cost efficiency... it's hard for customers to say no. I'm not entirely sure how much cheaper it is but cost does seem to be a selling point.
With Webster, Christian and now some Jasper County agencies going to DMR.. I decided to start tinkering with Dsd+.

FWIW Jasper County's new system is NXDN which I can now monitor with my TRX-2 and the NXDN upgrade (free!).The JASCO system also has Webb City and Carthage. Webb City's main PD frequencies are non-trunked NXDN. Joplin's system is P25 with the police TGs encoded.
DMR at Mercy and Freeman (non-medical), and several manufacturers - General Mills, Heartland Pet, Jayhawk Chemical (just across the line in KS) and most of the RECs in SW MO are now DMR. All monitorable with DMR upgrade.
There is a very busy DMR 4 or 5 frequency Land Mobile system in Springfield. Lots to hear!
