I go on ski trips and take lots of radio equipment along including the bcd396t.
Kalispel PD or Flathead County appears on the Big Mountain system.
The VHF site is on top of a peak 3000 feet NW of Whitefish Ski area.
It is a Motorola P25 vhf band type (qpsk)
It worked fine using the database info for plans found here.
Most of the time the radio shows dat when crossing 170.850;
and most of the time 155.97 was the channel in use.
154.92 154.9425 155.97 170.85cc
plan 1 151.01
plan2 158.73
plan3 161.01

TG 2801 and a 3 digit one which did not get stored due to missing groups.

Most of the equipment I got a look at was motorola installed in busses.
These had a aingle green display showing a 1 or 2 digit channel.

Another control channel was found at 151.31 but it was not trunk tracking.
It appears the band plan is wrong in my radio.

I put these freqs in and they did not trunk track because had incorrect 800 mhz band plans.
151.31 cc
153.875
154.89
155.70

I could decode p25 audio on the non control channels in normal scan but
the correct band plan is most likely the same as the Big Mountain System.

I will post a photo of the likely site if possible.
