Default Metro Parks TG's

TG raidio IDs are the same for both the Lake Couty and Cuyahoga System.

There is a Metro Park located in Willoughby Hills, Mayfield Hts. and this may be the reason for the two TG's.

The TG's are not related to the Lake County Parks vs. Metro Parks System as I know.

I cannot tell you if you can hear both at the same time just never checked.

Lake County Parks vs Metro Parks not the same.......

I came to the conclusion that no one factor is improving reception. It varies based on location of the scanner, the above settings, seemingly time of day, and even particular TGs.

Unfortunately the Cuyahoga P25 bad reception is not limited to the 500. For the most part reception on the PSR800 is also horrible on the Cuyahoga County MARCS P25 system. Sitting 1 mile from a tower and the transmissions are unintelligible. Encryption is not needed on this system, you can't understand in the clear tranmissions for the most part. Based upon a side by side tests I have done with a Motorola XTS 5000 and PSR 800, the reception issue is scanner related. The 5000 is consistently clear while the 800 is consistently garbled.

Now that's funny!!

For the Lake Co. listening you've been doing...how has that been sounding overall on the 800? Better than the Cuyahoga P25?

From my house Lake and Cuyahoga are mostly garbled. If I drive up to Lake County, the Lake System is very clear. If I drive to the West Side of Cleveland, Cuyahoga is much better but never as good as Lake is when in Lake.

I have now split the MARCS P-25 System on my 800 to be able to just listen to the Lake Control Channels or just the Cuyahoga Control channels. Strangely, Cuyahoga is a tiny bit better at my house this way.

Today I am messing with the Advanced DSP, ADC and DAC settings. So far I am not noticing much difference.

As you know from my XTS 5000 tests the real issue with the Cuyahoga MARCS P-25 portion are the scanner's problems decoding the system. Why the 700 Mhz is so much worse than the Lake 800 Mhz is a mystery to me.

About an hour ago I was in Willoughby near 90/91, and had the 500 with me with the RS 800 duck. Lake sounded pretty clear at times and overall intelligible. Ditto coming back down I-271 to Highland Heights.

Cuyahoga was still bad and I had to switch it off.

I am gaining on Cuyahoga County MARCS P-25 by changing advanced settings on PSR 800. I have got it far better now then it has been at any time in the past month. Course I don't know what I have done to MARCS, Parma P-25, Bath P-25 etc. That is yet to be seen.

Heard another talkgroup 27560. Sounded like traffic between FD chiefs discussing manpower and reports of a possible fire at substation in Kirtland. I believe Mentor, Eastlake, and Kirtland were in on the conversation.

I heard traffic on this talk group and thought it was a west-side location (was babysitting a down tree on wires across the road and must have been in one of those rare locations that I could receive this system).

Unfortunately, I couldn't pay that close attention. This storm has us running all over town.

TG59685: Last night I monitored a dispatch to 1431 Waterbury, tree took down power lines. That address is in Lakewood just off of Detroit Road. The unit assigned to the call replied back to "Storm Command". Sounds like Lakewood Emergency Ops.

TG13500 has also been very active since last evening. Due to LSM garble I haven't copied any specifics.

I am hearing quite a bit of activity on TG59685, and in fact was going to look it up when I saw this update. Will note specifics when I can. BTW, that TG is 100% crystal clear!

Also hearing clear comms on TG13500.

Tg 59685 also heard during storm only lakewood fd units heard. This tg still being heard today. (all locations given were in lakewood)

not sure if this is a tac channel for the system or just lakewood. No pd traffic heard.

Nothing heard on the uhf freq. For lakewood fd during same time.

Tg 27539 was that fd traffic or pd traffic?
