I apologize in advance if this has been brought up before as I didn't spend tons of time searching for a thread on it. I have been working on a report that includes a bunch of statistics on trunked systems. As I was pouring through the database looking for information, I noticed it currently shows some 1600 Motorola systems and 250 some EDACS systems. However if one looks closely a number of those systems don't have any talkgroups listed and haven't been updated in years. It's highly likely that a number of those systems are no longer on the air or were listed in the database based on erroneous information. I even saw a couple instances where frequencies were listed for a new trunked system for the same agency, but the old system still shows as being active. While a lot of focus seems to be on submitting new systems there doesn't seem to be near the interest in submitting information on systems that are no longer in operation. I think there may be some feasibility in starting a campaign for members to check out systems in their area to see if they are still on the air and submitting info on the status of them. For my part I try to submit info on dead systems in my area when they occur but that only solves the issue for a small geographic area. Hopefully at the very least my post will urge others to go dead system hunting as well.
