Hey, I have a friend who's visiting the OBX for a couple of weeks and took his trusty HP-1 with him, but is having zero luck monitoring the Dare County 800MHz system. Anyone had any of the same issues or recommendations?

(I haven't been to the OBX in about 8 years, and didn't monitoring anything when I was there, so I haven't been able to provide him the first piece of advice on this).

Other than the obvious "make sure all the control freqs are programmed", I don't know what to tell you. I have no trouble recieving this system from lower Currituck all the way to Avon on my Pro-106.

Another thought....

Make sure he has he P25 system, not the old analog system programmed. Last time I was there, the only thing being transmitted on the analog were failsoft beeps. Everyone, including Dare County Schools Transportation are on the P25 system now.

Multipath distortion is very bad here and using a stock omnidirectional antenna on a Uniden will yield most traffic un-listenable.
