I know the PSR-500 is susceptible to images in the 700MHz Public Safety Band (ostensibly, so is the Pro-106). I was getting some false hits from the San Antonio system in this band from about 65-70MHz away. That would explain why you're hearing Collin Cty.

I'm about a mile from the McKinney tower and I didn't hear anything on any of those freq's on the Uniden. I programmed in 796.875 on the 600 and got full bars. I think that probably explains the problem.

Those are birdies or intermod.
Base stations and repeaters in the 700 MHz band are 746-776 MHz and mobile are 776-806 MHz.

Thanks everyone - I kinda thought CCSO dispatch might have been a birdie. but didn't know for sure.

Someone delete one of these posts please - this website has been funky lately and I have no idea how it double posted.

Check out 774.90625, active control channel tonight on the City of Dallas's new 700MHz ASTRO P25 system. Tower is co-located at the Channel 4 DPD repeater site on Mountain Creek Road at Wheatland (Florina Tower).

I doubt I can hear 700 that far away, but I'll try. Does anyone have a clue what the frequencies are for the Collin Co. Wilmeth Rd. tower?

Mike, I'm getting a Good Control Channel on Frisco's new frequencies. (Just wanted to toss that in without starting a new thread)
