Taking a trip up north through Maryland on I-95 and noticed a few changes in the database. Just want to make sure I cover it so can someone please confirm the following: (from north to south)

Exit 109-64 / Beltway through Cecil, Harford and Baltimore counties, MSP JFK on FIRST.
Exit-64-49 / Fort McHenry Tunnel - MTAPD on FIRST (what talkgroup?) The last time I remember them on UHF !!!
Exit 49-46, MSP Golden Ring on FIRST
Exit 46-PGC line, MSP Waterloo still on Howard County ?
to VA line, MSP College Park still on PGC system (see they moved to Phase II)

That's a pretty good list.
Yes MDTAP at the tunnels and at Key Bridge or Port of Baltimore now on FiRST instead of the 453mz frequencies. Lots of other MDTAP and State Police now on FiRST, including AA County. I think Waterloo is still patched to Howard and College Park to PG, but they are planned to go to FiRST and may do some comms there.

You will also get a lot of SHA units now on the FiRST system through this area now. They are typically on top of any accidents or highway closures and a good source of info.... usually better than MSP.

As someone else noted, MSP Forestville is also on the PGC 700 system, P25p2. They cover from US50 south to the Virginia line along I-95. MSP Waterloo is still on the HoCo system.
