Don't feel bad, Hell I'm in Rome and can't pick up the system like I did with my analog scanner, I think I could encase the old analog scanner in lead and it would still pick up the ONE repeater on Mt. Alto.
This "DIGITAL" crap is just that CRAP, with the Pro 106 you can forget about listening UNLESS you live with in sight of one of the repeaters, and for mobile, forget about it. When I get on Shorter Ave on the Western part of the city and go all the way East across town, I get about two words of a conversation then it drops out for a few seconds, two more words, drops out and that is the best the 106 can do. May just be a setting that I haven't found yet, but, believe me I have tried almost every one of them.
