I received the BC325P2 about a month or more ago. The primary reason for the purchase is to listen to APS, especially during stormy weather and other power outages. I had no problem downloading the system from the RRDB. What I noticed right away is that this P2 system really sounds tinny. It's like digital on steroids. Is this common for Phase 2 systems? It seems worse than the Phase 1 systems I listened to when I lived in California. I tuned on the AGC, which seemed to help a little, although I don't know why. Is there something else in the settings for the radio that might improve the reception? I would imagine that the radios APS people are using in the field sound far better than a hobby level receiver. Sometimes it is hard to understand transmissions because of the tinny sound.
