P25 is C4FM modulation. FM has "capture effect", which lets the stronger signal through while muting any weaker duplicates. Under normal circumstances, you will hear the nearest tower.

BTW I am straight South of Cameron Park and from my back deck I have a perfect view of Mount Diablo there is one tower out in the Valley area just south of Folsom/Sacramento

You are undoubtedly receiving Carpenter Peak Site. Twitchell is too far away with it's very small coverage radius.

I'm thinking it might be Rancho Murieta that's straight in line with Mount Diablo and I have line of sight through that Valley all the way to Mount Diablo Carpenters Peak I think is obscured by the hill across from me

Twitchell isn't on the same frequencies as the county simulcast sites. It is in the 700 band - the simulcast sites are on 800.

Yes I see that now, on the 436 I was getting the sac sheriff and it said twitchell Island but no other cities. Now on the 100 I get countywide I'm not sure at this point what tower I'm seeing, and the audio is not perfect, but I am getting sac City and all the surrounding cities including West Sacramento
