Yes the system is up. Received control channel traffic on 770.190625 on my PSR 500 with 2A5 system ID. I talked with a friend and he mentioned the system to me before I had a chance to bring it up. I have not located an FCC License for this site.
When the TVRS was being built out in east TN several of the sites were on the air before they showed up in the FCC data base. They are licensed several different ways: Chattanooga, City of; Tennessee State of (TVRTS); Roane, County of; Blount, County of....etc.
Always good to do control channels searches in the 700 & 800 bands to find what's new.
Given the state is ponying up money it sounds like the "statewide system" is underway being built.
Anybody in Nashville keeping an eye on that new P25 systems that's part of mid-state TVRS?
