There are two different agencies; Maine Turnpike Authority plows should be on the 151.130 repeaters, with a different PL for each site. Maine DOT plows would be on the low-VHF repeater/simplex system. Honestly, I haven't tried to monitor either yet this year, but I'll plug them in and try to get a confirmation.

I was informed by a TP supervisor today they have gone to digital and the freqs are still the same but I haven’t worked on this yet!!!

The York MTA repeater is still active on 160.770, PL 123.0, however it is not nearly as busy as it has been in the past. Perhaps it no longer repeats the 151.070 Falmouth repeater, and is stand alone now? Maintenance has been quiet on 151.130 for me so far.

Check the RCM Inc. DMR trunked system - I'm definitely hearing Turnpike on it, but I think I'm hearing the State Farm Safety Patrol / Service trucks on it, so maybe maintenance went there too? I'm at work so I don't have the talkgroup right in front of me, but I can post later.

My TRX-1 shows the talkgroup I referenced in the earlier post as 2097182.

This might be the HEX talkgroup as opposed to the standard DEC - I think the TRX-1 displays the HEX for some DMR trunked systems (Hytera XPT?) - but regardless, that's what it is showing. Someone who knows more than I do about how it all works can chime in if they can clarify...
