Hello,

The Miami Valley P25 group has an UHF repeater in Xenia, Ohio. They even have codeplugs for some radios on the website. I noticed the Motorola XTS5000 codeplug has FPP on the first zone, like I have mine setup. http://www.miamivalleyp25.group/

I assume communications on-site will be through Roger's 900 repeater. There does not seem to be a 900 Mhz ham repeater in the Dayton area.

Hello,

I see some information was given last year on Miami Valley P25:

P25
Site 291 Xenia – Freq 444.0125+, NAC $291, Talkgroup 9001
For more programing information please check out http://www.miamivalleyp25.group

Looking at the code plug, each site has a linked nac/talkgroup and a local nac/talkgroup. The above is the local nac and talkgroup for Xenia.

The Dayton site might be useful as people still stay around that area.
Site 571 Dayton - Freq 443.4625+, NAC $571, Talkgroup 9001

I used this system last year. The local repeater had a bunch of P25 users on site.
