Does anybody know if the SONGS system is still up and running? I know they are in the process of dismantling operations. Tried it on the scanner a few months ago and didn't hear anything. Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

I see no reason why it shouldn't be. You do have to be right on top of the plant to hear anything, and most of the system has special antenna configurations.

I installed a bunch of UHF MotoTRBO stuff there years ago.

I'd expect it to still be in use for security, but very light use generally.
