Yeah that's what i mean...You can hear it.. Definitely, I was just wondering if there is anyone that can possibly fix the feed....Maybe....thank you for ensuring it isn't only me...lolI'm not sure what is happening but I'm hearing a lot of bleed as well from the queens dispatch frequency. It seems to be the Staten Island dispatch that's bleeding over, it's not breaking the squelch but it is there if you don't have the pl enabled. it's definitely messing with the receive quality.
A good radio with proper filters shouldn't have any issue with immediately adjacent 12.5 kHz spaced frequencies, which are how some (not all) of the FDNY frequencies are spaced apart from each other. Of course if any radios are programmed for 5 kHz TX deviation, that could cause issues where they need to be 2.5 kHz deviation.Strong transmitters on close together (narrow) frequencies, I'm assuming plays a major role. Other factors might be atmospheric conditions of a particular day and amount of simultaneous radio traffic on multiple fdny dispatch frequencies.
Even when monitoring from Motorola radios, there is static and broken transmissions.
