    Simulcast audio/data reception issues with SmArt SDR tuners and SDRTrunk

    Hello all. I've recently had time to get back into SDR after a few years and I'm having some issues with my new tuners and software. The SDR setup consists of a Windows 8.1 workstation with two tuners, the first a Nooelec NESDR v4 RTL-SDR (820T) and another NESDR XTR (E1000). The first time I...

    Simulcast (Site)

    Hello, I had a question, so basically is there any way to find out what site my department uses or is that automatic? I’ve realized that my scanner scans through all these sites that it cuts of the traffic on the main site my department uses. So my question really is, does my department use one...

    BCD996P2 VS SDS200 on NJ Systems

    I was thinking about buying either buying the 200, or two bcd996p2's. Has anyone in Morris County experienced monitoring Morris County's P25 system, NJICS, & Parsippany with the 996p2 vs the 200? Can the 996p2 handle the simulcast like the 200 can? I heard it is hit or miss with the 996p2...

    Trying to listen to Minneapolis ARMERS

    Would anyone in this thread know the ARMERS system well enough to help me get a Uniden BCD436hp configured to listen to the Hennepin CO Simulcasts? I bought the DMR upgrade hoping that would help... no luck.

    Unication G4

    Eagle eyed readers will remember my previous postings, regarding how many times I've owned a G4. If memory serves, this would be my 5th one. Anyways, I've come to the realization that, I am not using my G4 as much as I thought I would. I take my G4 to work everyday, where I "listen" to it. Thing...

    So what is the technical issue with decoding simulcast?

    Since simulcast has been an issue for so long why aren't many, or all, scanners proficient in decoding it? I can't believe scanner manufaturers are allowed to sell them knowing they will not work correctly in many areas of the country. It isn't an elusive secret of the universe since Unication...

    Peoria County P25 reception

    I purchased my 996P2 back in March. I programmed the Peoria County system in and, when I was in the area, I got reception. I realized it would be be somewhat spotty because of my mobile application. It wasn't terrible, and I lived with it. Now, I can not pick it up at all. I looked in the...
