• 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 run my PSR-500 on a Onmi-Link, Multiple Site, Simo system without issue.

I am able to move around in a given site with no problems, and can roam to other sites and quickly acquire the new CC. The site I listen to most (Site 3) has 5 transmitters with overlapping coverage. In my same footprint, I can also receive at least 3 other sites which are also simo.

I do have a few areas that I get some odd interference in some areas, but I get that with other scanners in those areas as well.

Plenty of issues here on the Illinois Starcom 21 simulcast sites and my PSR-500.

Better than any other scanner, but not good, not really even acceptable.

I think it is about the best anyone can hope for. Since the 500/600 is providing the "latest" in simulcast decoding, I have to take what I can get. I think the performance, though, is marginal at best.

It always seems to cut out at the worst possible time for me...when something important is being said. :(

I am used to it now, though.

Thanks

I currently am using the other mfg and al the posts pretty much sum up how I feel about it too.The question I have to answer now is do I give it a try or not. Thanks to all the replies.

the only way to get good reception on a simulcast is with a good directional antenna and good cable..i have been through this with my system and it is the only way to make it work..i have a psr 500 that works great hooked to the directional on the roof but is not worth a dam portable with a RS 800 duckie..also have PRO 2096
