Default ETSB Peoria Co

I monitor the Peoria Co ETSB Network. ETSB has one of their antenna sites within one mile of my home. Should I expect to be able to monitor all of the county with the RANGE on the scanner only set at 5.0 miles. Thank You for your time

It's currently a simulcast system, so as long as you can hear one tower, you will hear all TGs on that system.

However, that system is about to go dark as they convert over to StarCom sometime in January.

Correct me if I'm wrong but won't it continue to be a simulcast system after its joined to StarCom?

The Peoria site of StarCom is already a simulcast site. The question will be what will they do with the towers of the current Harris system. They could add them to the existing Peoria StarCom site as an additional tower, or possibly create a whole new StarCom site, but I think that might be a bit of overkill.

But then again the current Peoria StarCom site only has 6 voice channels, so hard to say.
