Has anyone had recent success in monitoring the Marshall, MI Consumers energy site? I should be plenty close, but I cannot seem to pick up a control channel. I reprogrammed tonight with the most recent data in the RR Database.

It's been a few months since I've been there but they worked the last time I was in the area. Since you have the LCN in the correct order from my last visit is your site selected as EDACS?

Unless the LCN changed even if the control channel moved you should be ok. You may just be in a bad area to receive it. When I was in the area there were many places not far from the site if I parked my car the site either dropped out or fell to a very low decode rate, moving the car 10 feet brought it back to 99%.

I checked it yesterday and I couldn't get a signal on the control channel either. Didn't have a chance to listen today, but will check tomorrow during my commute.

Sounds good. I had some trouble on the far west side of the county, but I seem to remember hearing pretty well for a moment when we moved here. Strange.

It was coming in gangbusters by the time I got to the casino. I'll check it again on the way home & then again after I get in the house. Maybe the site was down for a couple days?

Must of just been down. Coming in like crazy here too. I got the scanner muted, plugged in via USB and dumping into ID tracker III. Time to see what I can snag.

I am 100% decode on the control channel now. I should add that I discovered my in-line amp for my scanner failed, and was interfering with both MPSCS and Consumers reception. After yanking that out, decode and audio became rock solid. Thank you everyone for your help.
