So the radio is tagged ground but I have learned that it is NXDN UHF. So, what I am assuming is that Pafford leases NexEdge from Smith Two Way and/or Action communications. One of the guys here thinks the tower is down near Rudy. Just north of Ft. Smith on 49 north. But when dispatch comes in it shows Stillwell. It is encrypted btw.

So with this info the OP needs to talk to his employer and see if they will allow him to buy his own radio give him a letter stating so buy a NX-5300 and pay the Radio Shop to program it.

That would be nice but not going to do that. Next step is to capture the frequency. However, as mentioned before, this system for Pafford is encrypted.

You still need written permission from your employer to put your radio in their sytem.

No, I meant not going to bother asking. If I really wanted to listen to them, I'll just buy a NXDN capable scanner. I live two hours away from there so I would be out of range anyways if I wanted to listen while not working.

You still have to have the ENCRYPTION CODES. They will never hand those over and truth be know only the Radio Shop knows them and will not hand them over.

So, correction to the encryption. What I thought was the encryption key symbol on on the display was actually the button lock. So, seems like there isn't any encryption after all.
