Link to the system in RRDB: San Diego County - Imperial County Regional Communications System (RCS) Trunking System, Various, California - Scanner Frequencies
Specific site monitored (if known): North Cell
Condition before: Mediocre
Condition after: Better

The P25 errs were peaking in the high 40s before the switch to FM. After the switch the errs were peaking in the low 30s. After the change I was able to change the threshold from 10 to 11 for additional improvement. After this success, I tried the same thing on my 396T and 396XT. I had good results on them as well. I wish this had been suggested for them years ago. This was very beneficial for multipath problems caused by simulcast.
