The trunking part would have little to do with it. Digitizing voice and then decoding it on the other end is an imperfect science and errors occur. So the voices sound muddy or robotic. Also low signal strength can make it worse. Some radios do a better job of it than scanners, and some scanners do a worse job than others. If you can understand most of what is being said, count your blessings.:wink:Hey i was wondering why digital trunking system voices sound not like human voices kind of and analog frequencies sound the exact way there voice sounds if you were talking to the person face to face?
Same for my 197 (don't have a 780 to compare), but in comparison to good old analog, there was definitely a learning curve for my ears. Maybe because like the rest of me they aren't what they once were...but there is a difference. Luckily an old dog can occasionally learn a few new tricks.The trunked P25 audio on my 197's sounds pretty natural. Nearly as good as my 780. . 73, n9zas
