I'm trying to listen to this system from across the mountain in Augusta County. The signal was marginal so I purchased an 800MHz directional antenna which has greatly improved reception, but it still drops out on occasion. I think the signal is strong enough now, so I'm wondering if there are any settings I can change in the 996T to help. The 996T is new and I'm not familiar with many of it's settings. RadioReference lists the system as a Motorola Type II Smartnet Analog and APCO-25 Common Air Interface. Thanks for any help.
