Yup. On Sarpy it shows Douglas County Simulcast as a neighbor/peer in UT. I have seen/heard OFD TGs, both FDMA and TDMA (it was either OFD TAC 4 or TAC 6 that was using TDMA during an apartment fire a day or two ago) used and even heard Gretna Fire talking to Lifenet on ORION Metro Helo TG 342 the other day when they had to get a helo to a overturned truck out in west Sarpy. I can get more details once I get back home tonight.

All of this with my SDS100 and UT with a dongle sitting on 859.7875.
The TDMA stuff was OFD TAC 6 (TG 447). Per UT, it was active on the two TDMA channels/freqs on the Sarpy P25 system (855.1375 and 855.7125). Sure as shoot, there they were Slot 1 and Slot 2 banging away on 17 Nov as per my SDS100.

I don't actively monitor ORION, and I don't see TG 447 listed as TDMA in the database for ORION. Maybe it is? Maybe something else is going on?

I love a mystery.

I run a streamer for OFD on my Pi3 with OP25. looking in the web browser it looks like a few of the OFD channels are now TDMA along with much of the rest of the Omaha Law talkgroups (OPD, DCCC, DCSO)

Another things to note is Sarpy is showing up as site 24 in ORION - FCC ULS shows Sarpy County Communications Agency as "owning" the frequency.

If we are good, I'll attempt to merge the systems - which will be a major headache, but will make sense.

I have TG 4077 TENTATIVELY ID'd as FIRETAC 24. Not sure enough of it to submit it to the database because I haven't heard enough traffic to really nail it. TG 4250 is the encrypted TG Gretna Fire uses so very often now. Haven't seen dispatch or even Springfield Fire on that one, although I still have many RIDs that I haven't equated to units yet. Still working on it.
I can verify TG 4077 as FIRETAC 24 - Gretna fire had a house/chimney fire tonight with extensive traffic on that channel. I submitted it to the DB.
Thanks for the help!
