• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have the Pro-197 and am located in Conroe. I am wondering where the tower is for Montgomery County Law enforcement. I can hear Conroe fine on the Edacs system however here in Conroe I can not hear the county at all on the p25 site. I was just wondering where the tower is located and if there was anything I could do to be able to hear them.

Two things...

1. I'm assuming your radio is programmed properly?

2. Site 51, which covers Montgomery County, is a simulcast site so it has 6 "sites" located around the county that all transmit on the exact same frequencies in unison.

I do have the Montgomery County simulcast programmed in. It picks up the CC however it is only about 50-60% on a good day, and even then If I hear anything at all its very limited and lots of static. Its picking up CC853.837500

Ok, are you using the stock antenna or something external?

I currently only have the stock antenna. Any suggestions for a decent indoor one?
I'll let someone else chime in with suggestions, every time I do people shoot them down. :D

With that being said, a different antenna would definitely make a difference. Whether it will make enough of a difference or not we don't know.
