From what I'm reading in these posts most prefer the GRE to Bearcat for P25 because of decoding. My experience with RS analog scanners is some terrible floor noise. I can have stations a mile away with fantastic RF levels and there's always this shshshshshshshs going on in the background. My ham radio sounds beautiful with no noise; it's like they are sitting next to me. Also is a Pro197 identical to the GRE?
