Did Inova change the control channel for this system? I believe that 464.825 is new control channel on this system per what I am listening to and per the license.

XPT doesn't have a dedicated control channel. If you're hearing what sounds like a control on 464.8250, maybe the hospital moved to a new system. More likely, they simply added 464.8250 to the existing XPT system.

Keep in mind a hospital in DC also uses DMR on 464.8250 (Color Code 4). I don't know if you'd pick this up from where you are.

Thanks Dave. I think 464.825 was added to the system based on the license. There is also another license for the Inova center for progressive health across the street that i want to try and figure out also. INOVA took over the old Mobil Oil property a few years back

What color code are you getting on 464.8250? The other three frequencies on the XPT system are using color code 1, so if 464.8250 is using 1 as well, that's a good indication that it's part of the system. Also, are you hearing continuous data on the frequency, intermittent data, or voice traffic?

I will have to check on that. I will check tommorrow and report. I was using my yaesu vx6r to to verify data bursts. I think it intermittent.
