There is a town that uses a frequency of 460.20000 PL 88.5 and there is a town in another county that uses the same freq but a different PL. I have the PL's programmed for both towns. Whenever both agencies talk at the same time, I get interference that causes the frequency to stop transmitting and I miss that part of the transmition. This happens on either frequency. Meaning, every time both freqs with different PLs are active I will not hear the town I'm listening to because of the interference cutting the audio out. I'm using the Pro-97 with the PLs programmed in, I tried using ATT on both freqs but I don't hear anything at all when I turned it on. I tried Locking out one freq but still happens. Is there anything I can do??

Yep, a directional antenna is about your only hope, and it may not completely cure the problem but it should help. The 2 transmitters are probably far enough away from each other that they don't interfere with each other, but you probably just happen to be about half way between them.
