...Is now DMR on 155.790. I don't have a DMR capable scanner, so I am unable to provide the fine details. Maybe Santa will be nice and give me a DMR unit!

Hopefully someone can dig up the details as I would love to put it in my xpr7550. DMR is one of the many features I have yet to use on that radio.

Whoever provides the feed to Broadcastify has DMR. Maybe he will pop up here and give us the info.

Wouldn’t hurt to post on RR about this as well

Is their repeater up on Blackstrap? I'm wondering if I could pick them up from here.

In any case, I've got 155.790 slot 1 and 2 in my CS751, will report back if I hear anything.

Here's their RFP for a DMR system: https://www.falmouthme.org/sites/falmou ... _radio.pdf
It calls for an analog simulcast of the DMR PD traffic on 153.740 PL 100.0.

Now that I have power back from our little storm, Falmouth's analog repeat of 155.790 is 153.740 DCS 265.

Monitoring from Garrison Hill in Dover, NH, it appears that Falmouth PD dispatch is Color Code 7, TG 781 on slot 1. I'm getting severe co-channel interference up here from Strafford County Sheriff (155.7975) and Laconia PD (also 155.790).

I am hearing some usage for Falmouth recently on the analog. I am not sure if that is simulcast or if they are having issues with the DMR channel. I am using an HP2 at the office, so I can't tell. I will have to bring in the 436 and hook that up to find out.
