This TRS has become a ghost town, making me assume that it is being eliminated. All government talkgroups have gone silent, in favor of the new "ARMER" digital radio system.

In the last couple months, these are the only frequencies I have observed in use with this radio system: 857.5875, 859.5875, 860.5875, and 862.7375. The data channel continues to change daily, bouncing between 857.5875 and 859.5875.

The only two talkgroups that remain active are . . .
16 ==> rental radios (rarely used, active as of May 2005)
33344 ==> unkown machinery company (active as of May 2005)

All other commercial users appear ot have left this radio system. Phillips Recycling appears to have licensed its own frequency with the FCC. I am at a loss as to what DHL Airborne Express and other commercial users have switched.

This trunk system appears to have gone offline permanently last week.

The system was active with one commercial user remaining on October 3, 2005. By October 8, even the control frequencies were silent.

I still do not know what happened to most commercial users. The government users switched to the ARMER trunk system.
