I updated my 436 yesterday, and I'm waiting for more P25 traffic (slow weekend) to better identify any P25 reception improvement in this neck of the woods.

Can you tell us how, specifically, your P25 reception was improved?

Thanks.

Did the update, and am happy to report NO degrading of an expected near 100% reception experience. Had a 436 and an 800, side-by-side. The two radios are milliseconds out of sequence with each other, rendering the voice quality slightly degraded but very recognizable (sort of a cartoon quality, lol). The two offerings were so close together that I was never able to determine which radio was "ahead" or "behind". Listening for about ten minutes straight, the two radios never once had an instance when a single radio offered an undistorted lone voice. Quite remarkable, actually, like two twin Clydesdales in perfect form. Both were monitoring a single site with only three TGs (Phoenix PD), of the notorious RWC System in Maricopa Co., AZ. Listening to the two radios separately, I think that I prefer the "sound" of the 436. However, the difference is so subtle, that I can not explain my preference.

DSP for the PSR-800 down to 44

Try turning the DSP for the PSR-800 down to 44 and the Timing will in sync
