Does anybody know what kind of system MDC uses, They have a police force and general maintenance. I've always wanted to know what they use but can't find it anywhere. Are they on a fully encrypted system or using CTLMRN? (I use a Pro-668).
Thanks, Garrett

I found them by searching DMR ranges and then by listening to the content of the communications and looking up addresses on the web that were mentioned. Took a while but finally pinned who it was down. Nothing too exciting to listen to, just fun to try to figure out the puzzle. Oh the freq... I'll give you a hint, it IS DMR, Color Code 10, and somewhere between 461-465. I haven't listened to them for a while so let me listen and see if they are still on there. I'll be back...

Can the pro 668 get DMR?
If you pay for it.

They use a Linked Capacity plus system. 5 sites across the northern part of the state. Their crews use it when working in the field and they do have a "district wide" channel. They don't have anything dedicated for their own police department.

Ok, that's what I was thinking

the PD uses the state system. They are just on whichever troop talkgroup for the area they are in, Barkhamsted guys pop up on B dispatch all the time

Yep, So does New Hartford police, do you happen to know the callsigns, or unit numbers of the NHPD guys, like Janco?
