Much like my other recent posts, I want to hear what trunked systems people are listening to besides the ARMER system. As many others hear already know, there is a lot of traffic on ARMER, but not everybody is on it. Lets hear what you like to listen to. Do you like to listen to XCel when the power goes out on their Motorola trunked system? Do you listen to the Mall Of America Security on their UHF LTR system? Is there ANY GE/Ericsson/Tyco/Macom EDACS left anywhere in Minnesota? I used to tune RACOM once in great while, but I sure didn't hear much. I assume the City Of Bloomington switched everything to ARMER. Anyway, lets hear what other trunked systems you listen to.

Also, as a side not. Is Eden Prairie still using some Multi-Net for non-public safety?

Living where I do, its pretty much all ARMER.
I do have Xcel and listen as you describe, also Center Point. I have not yet figured out Great River Energy yet and you figure since I live in Elk River I might get something out of it..but not yet, could have something wrong in Radio?
Other than that my options are slim, some Action Radio and Granite Electronic when I am REALLY bored and want something to do... I speak english only and am not real big on what's on those Trunked.

I do enjoy listening to The MOA and the casino's when I am in the vicinity, Mystic Lake and Treasure Island. I sat in Mystic's parking lot one day before heading home from a job in the area LOL.

When traveling to Rochester I listen to Mayo and Fed Med Center, I am usually working at Mayo when I am there..

I've always tried to get excited about listening to other TRS's, but within hours end up locking them out and just listening to ARMER.

The only other TRS I really listen to is Ancom, and that's just for Life Link which is supposedly moving to ARMER soon. Everything else on there (mostly towing companies) is pretty boring to listen to.

Yes. Eden Prairie has there own P25 system that is used day to day for city services (school buses, public works, parks, etc.). This system is also used as a backup for fire and police but is not used on a day to day base.
