Do I want it on P25 AUTO or P25 MANUAL? Or does it not make a difference?
EDIT: Made no difference adding those frequencies. I still don't pick up the Washtenaw Co traffic. Only sometimes do I get it..
This is not the first time I have heard this, and still do not understand the logic behind it. The whole problem here is the multipath issue. Since every tower within a simulcast system broadcasts the control channel on the same freq, at the same time, the closer you are to this system the worse the multipath issue will be. So to say that you have to be within the county to pick up the system is completely inaccurate.The PSR 800 is the best of the GRE radios for this but if you aren't inside Washtenaw county you might have issues even picking up the control channel.
