I think the brain-deads just speeded up the process, it would have happened anyway.

Get yourself an MD-380 and you can listen in again, very few if any SW are encrypted at the moment, but if the local morons get 380's and start messing about again then that will be the next thing.

I'm sure Shopwatch have been on DMR for a while now, the DMR repeater has been active for a few years. During the day parking and the council engineers seemed to be the only ones on MPT, with Pubwatch at night.

They've had morons keying up and making noises down the radio's for years which probably didn't help things.

I'm pretty sure the system used to be on the old 40m high council block that was demolished a few years ago which gave the wide coverage. I think it's now moved onto the town hall building on Waterdale which is considerably lower.
