Now I am not sure if this is related to the sticky of P25 or not. Phase I works great but Phase II lacks a lot to be desired. The audio sounds will deep and a lot of bass and sometimes I can't even hear it at all as it sounds like it isn't getting a strong signal as it is cutting out and choppy even though it is getting a strong signal but, that is just what it sounds like. I have noticed it is worse on dispatch rather than the units so I am not sure if this is a problem with their system or the settings on my radio. I have done the whole switch from NFM to FM and it didn't help at all. I thought it was maybe the system until I listened to another Phase II system and the same problem. So it must be the settings in the scanner or a problem with the scanner on Phase II. There are P25 systems that are twice as far as the Phase II systems and they are crystal clear so it isn't a range problem. Is there some settings I can check that will clean up the audio so it isn't so deep and dial in the choppy audio. The antenna I am using is a ST-2 up on a 50" tower. I am able to hit repeaters 100 mile away on P25 Phase I crystal clear. So I don't think I should be having a signal strength problem on this systems that are very close. The map below shows where the systems are in reference to me. Red are the Phase II systems which I have problem with and the green are Phase I that I have no problem with even on the 996XT.
