Bastrop is coming in very garbled on most freqs and I cant make out Smithville at all unless I am right in front of the station. Smithville PD is operating on our secondary freq - don't know why we aren't using the primary.....
I am not familiar enough with these new scanners to know what to tinker with - or if anything at all will help. I really would like to monitor our dispatch and fire when I am at home or in my truck. If I need to purchase a better scanner then I will and if you have a suggestion I'd appreciate that too !
I have a 1/4 wave exterior antenna external on the truck but swapping out to the flex antenna doesn't change anything.....I thought I might be overloading the front end somehow.
Thanks in advance for any help or comments !!
You could switch to the Unication G4/G5 series of P25 Voice pagers... I have seen where it has solved simulcast issues for a number of members here on RR. Just Google search them. One of their employees is also a member of these forums. I believe his handle is UnicationDan or something like that,
