    Absolutely. Do the SDS100 and SDS200 fare any better?

    Yep - already have attenuator activated for the site. Still was not able to hear Collin County Public Safety using the Yagi. Also thought about purchasing another cheap Yagi and setting it up indoors for comparison.

    True dat! I think I'm receiving PAWM "well enough" with the outdoor Yagi @ 10ft and aimed 270 - no scanner setting or antenna direction has yet to eliminate dropouts. I haven't varied the antenna height yet, but I would like to try lowering it.

    I'm also wondering if perhaps an inline attenuator between the Yagi and the scanner might help. Trying to get this scanner to properly decode P25 II is very tedious.

    Correct, my Yagi is aimed at the Ridgeview tower. Tom's feed doesn't include metadata (that I can see). His feed does include Plano Dispatch 1, lagging a few minutes behind what I hear on my scanner. The Yagi is not picking up the Collin County Simulcast, as its frequency range is specifically...

    Once I can find out exactly what freqs/id's are in TomOrtiz's Plano Police Dispatch feed, I'll be able to solve the mystery of the differences between his feed and my scanner's receive. On Tom's feed today, for instance, I hear a female dispatcher who I don't hear at all on my scanner. I...

    No, I meant to say, it's not a timing thing, I wasn't hearing the transmissions come thru at all on the Broadcastify feed.

    Tonight I set up a Yagi eleveated about 8ft and aimed roughly at the Independece/Eldorado tower, and was able to hear Plano Dispatch 1 and 2 finally. But, the transmissions coming thru from Plano Dispatch via the Broadcastify feed do not seem to coincide with those I'm now hearing on my...

    Great question. When I park on PPD 1, I *occasionally* hear a distorted, broken voice. I'm using the latest DB from RR and I just created a favorites list with only PAWM. Generally on PAWM, I hear nothing.

    Sounds like a good strategy might be to buy/build a directional Yagi just for PAWM, and use an antenna switcher to select between my existing discone and the Yagi. Or better yet, use the 536HP for the truck and bite the bullet and buy an SDS200 for home :)

    I'm about 1.5 mi NW of the Allen tower. This definitely presents a very interesting problem. I will try experimenting with different antennas as well as going mobile.

    Thanks much for your help here, Steve. I am 2.31 miles NW of the location indicated on the RR map for the PAWM site. I've tried listening using both the telescoping indoor antenna, as well as an outdoor discone antenna mounted about 18ft high.

    I'm able to listen to Plano Police Dispatch via Broadcastify, but my scanner is not picking it up. The feed provider is TomOrtiz, but I don't seem to have permissions to send him a message on here to find out how I might be able program my scanner.

    My radio (Uniden 536HP) is most definitely P25 II capable, but I hear nothing from Plano on PAWM.

    I echo TexTac's appreciation for the diligent work being done here. I'm a HAM but am just now coming back to scanning after not owning a scanner for several decades. Am attempting self-educate as best I can - so please forgive my novice questioning. I just got a 536HP (using 11/15 version of...
