    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.

Hey guys,

I just bought a GRE PSR-500 and on some of my digital station it comes in very garbled and I hardly can hear them talking.. On my Michigan State Police station it comes in perfectly clear... It has the same trunking as my Allegan County station (Garbled one).

Is this a Signal issue or something I have to deal with? If it is a signal issue what new antenna should I purchase?

Thanks,
JBelknap

The RadioShack 800mhz antenna fixed my similar issue, you could also try messing with the ATT button, could be overloading the front end.

Good luck.

Thanks for the quick reply,

If I get the RS 800mhz antenna will it affect my Sheriff Frequency of 154.69500??

Thanks

Yes it will. An 800 MHz antenna will not receive your 154 MHz frequency as well as an antenna designed for those 154 MHz frequencies. However, depending on how strong the signal is, you may be able to get away with it.
