155.790 pl is district 8 dispatch. It's other half is 155.730 127.3 pl. District 8 runs that area. I'll check my stuff see if it matches what you found on rest. On a note I heard 2 times digital output on 155.790. It seemed like a quick test about a year ago. I asked about it and my source told there waitong for others to get on but I think he meant others to get digital capable equipment in the state.

There's been allot upgrading in otero county past year. Evertyhings narrowbanded last I knew of. From what I understand alamogordo itself plans to go full blown digital by 2015 sometime if not sooner and is currently installing a voip system and adding or will be a additional or upgrading 2 repeaters for a voting system in the basin. I'm not sure if they'll go trunked later but the capability will be there after with what there getting I was told. Theyd just have to file the STA for it. As for otero county departments they plan to stay analog I was told. For sure fire anyway. I know there is now a uhf mobile extender the sheriff uses and fire services in the mountains only and chaparral area but I haven't located it yet passing through. The rest still use vhf portables.

If the database doesn't have them someone there may listen to re confirm there still in use. I know Lincoln had waivers for while to use wide band so it's possible they could have changed something. Once it's re confirmed I'll submit it if db doesn't have it. I know the fire tacs won't change. There used for interop with other county fire agencies on county lines.

Fwiw ruidoso pd upgraded to xts2500 radios and xtl2500s past winter. They are des capable and at users discretion If chosen. You'll hear the des board burst from them the repeater throws out.

The nmdot one is the maint for highway dept for the district. The nmdot site prob has the district number. It's not same numbering as state police uses. I caught them referring to talk around during a patch job on Highway 70 outside ruidoso downs.

So you found the repeater which is cool. I didn't locate it as they were doing direct talk to another on the site.

One thing about the entire area it gets good skip and reception. Specially in mountains as high as there are. One complaint I heard is other agencies out in distance bleeding in using same freqs and by chance a tx tone the repeater carries over to the rx side in the mountains.

I was told that's why alamogordo wants to go digital from bleed overs from lea county and Texas counties near by on there freqs and people illegally transmitting on law channels. I know recent incident where a person tx'ed on a otero county fire channel because his relative got lost at white sands but wasn't completely lost. Hear it made people aggravated there.

Also 154.680 is the input for otero county sheriff so don't rule out your hearing there input channel or both mixed crossing another.

If your in mountain areas Lincoln or otero I'd monitor 453.2625 and 458.2625. Possible this is the uhf vehicle repeater they use and in chaparral. I know the detention center uses uhf. Not to confuse it with otero federal pen.

I was just informed otero county is doing reprogramming for p25 phase 1 for sheriff's end and fire being analog. From what I understand Lincoln is also going to go p25 digital.
