New radio owner here. I took a look at the thread about Sugarbush from earlier this year. Is that all still accurate info? Trying to figure out my way around my BCD436HP, having now paid for DMR upgrade. Still not hearing anything. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Hello. According to the entry in the Scan New England Wiki, it's a four frequency DMR Capacity Plus trunked system.
The problem is, without the proper LCN, the scanner won't trunk track it properly. The system needs to be properly vetted (perhaps you can) using LCN Finder!

For now, you can enter in a single conventional system with the four frequencies. Keep the name fields default, so you can see the TGIDs.
The color codes will decode no matter what.

According to the SNE page, the four are 464.525, 464.675, 464.775, 464.875

The info is accurate. I have not figured out the LCN. I have no clue how. I can still hear most transmissions by just punching in the frequencies as a motoTRBO system.
What software are you using?
I am using FreeSCAN 2.19 beta1 with a BCD325P2. However this software does not list your BCD436HP as compatible. I will read up on LCN finder. Please share if you find the LCN.

The old thread seems to be closed. I would like to add that I have heard Claybrook is using 467.875 D331 Not really interesting for me but may be for you. (This appears to be a low power simplex channel that is not DMR)

I had re-confirmed the Motorola MotoTRBO Capacity Plus trunked system at Sugarbush. Frequencies 464.5250, 464.6750, 464.7750 & 464.8750 - the repeaters are atop Mount Lincoln, Warren, at the summit ski lift.

They have 3 additional repeaters, located at a different geographic location on 463.4875, 463.8125 & 464.2750, at 271 Moulton Rd, Warren. This site is for fill-in coverage as Lincoln Peak had issues penetrating here. So you have 4 freqs at primary site, and 3 at this 2nd site. Now they all repeat the same traffic as they are both linked together. So if ski patrol is near Lincoln Peak or near the Moulton Rd site, they don't change channel. So I would monitor all 7 in my scanner, or software, as they are all in use, depending on radio traffic, etc.

The last 3 are in the SNE WIKI as "Future Analog" which has been wrong for years now, they are TRBO trunked.

Always has been Licensed as Analog

correct, which it was licensed wrong to begin with (as analog only). The FCC licensing vendor failed to submit it with DMR emissions as well. He was supposed to add the 3 new freqs to the original license, but he created a new call sign instead. I informed Sugarbush staff back in Sept 2015 the license modification was wrong. In Oct 2015 I submitted to SNE of the analog only freqs should be the same as the 4 DMR TRBO freqs. SNE never made the update. I'm on vacation every Sept of each year there around Sugarbush and have confirmed the two systems, synced together. When I'm there, I only monitor with my BCD996P2 scanner (in conventional, DMR search mode), so I don't have the LCN #'s, sorry..

Good afternoon all.

I recall reading on this forum a while ago that Sugarbush had recently switched to a MotoTRBO Cap + system. If my memory serves correct, one or more of you have digital-capable scanners (unlike myself) and were able to pick up some transmissions from there.

Do any of you by chance have a list of some of the talkgroup IDs that are in use?

Thanks in advance!
