Have come across a P25 Frequency that sounds like it belongs to TVA. Sounds like will possibly be TVA Police.
172.475 with a tone of 303
Hearing traffic from Alabama and Tennessee units.

Good info! I found the 172.475 MHz frequency a couple months ago and after listening a bit, like you, decided it was TVA. While I couldn't find anything in the Alabama frequency database here on RR, I did find this page in the Tennessee database:

I was not able to find a Monte Sano in Tennessee so I believe this is likely Monte Sano mountain in Huntsville, AL as there are a ton of radio installations on Monte Sano, from weather to commercial TV stations.

I mostly heard dispatching from Knoxville but, admittedly, haven't tuned in lately. Everything was on Eastern Time.

Thank you both for sharing the information!

This is the way the forum should work. The exchange of info so all scanner enthusiast can enjoy the hobby. Have been on since I listened to my grandparents old crystal controlled bearcat in the early 80s(before programmable was developed) and have followed as I could.
Also thanks to MDKramerAL and radiopro52 for the info they shared.
Happy listening to all.
