Here's the 7 site design, de-scoped from an 8 site design. I'm always interested in how new systems function when original designs are tossed for cost reasons, but user expectations have not changed.

The county provided documentation that states the system will have 5 channels which correlates with your finding. The RRDB entry for the system has some extraneous frequencies that should be removed if they are not verified. The frequencies in the FCC licenses are likely to be correct.I finally got back around to monitoring the new system tonight using DSD+. It appears that they are currently using 852.2250 as the control channel with 4 voice channels. Has anyone else been monitoring? Any talk groups starting to be active?
I would check them again because it doesn't correspond to the FCC licensing, or what the county states the system as consisting of 5 channels. If they are using the frequencies you found, the county would be in violation and possibly interfering with another user. But you are there and I am not.The submitted frequencies came from Pro96com and dsd+ as I submitted them
It's going to be simulcast P25, so the expensive scanners / radios that are designed to work with simulcast systems will like be the best choice. A Uniden 996P2 or Whistler TRX series are technically capable of receiving the system, but will likely not be the best choice.Powhatan Today –07/07/2021Powhatan Today –07/07/2021 © 2021 by Richmond Suburban Newspapers.

My attempt at providing a link may not work.
Powhatan Today, (newspaper), July 7, 2022 edition provides article on updated timeline for testing in field and switch over, with legacy ending at the end of this year. I did not check the County's Facebook page if the same information is given.
Now, for my information:
What current or past scanners will work with Harris and or this new system?
I am sure the latest from the 996x on probably will, but are there any older radios that would work?
