Multipath distortion from the simulcast system you are on...

Thank you.

Here in Louisville there are some days where the simulcast system's decoding isn't too good. Then there are some days when its better than usual. My sense is that when the weather is bad, such as rainy, decoding degrades.

using a yagi antenna i have. the error rate has gotten down to the mid 50s. i'm monitoring the carver/scott tower in Shakopee at 13751 ZUMBRO AVE witch is 4.5 miles from me

im in chaska and can see the tower on a clear day from the room my scanner is in.

Scott - 63 meters 17 watts into 5dBi antenna max power of 87 Watts- 360 degrees coverage

Hennepin - 66 meters 70 watts into 11.5 dBi max power of 140 Watts -120 degrees coverage.

I suspect some tuning may be in order- if you are getting full bars but high error rate, I have fixed this on my 396T with fine tuning.

Yep i have full bars off hennepin East and Carver/scott on that site Hennepins error rate is at most 20%

Scott - 63 meters 17 watts into 5dBi antenna max power of 87 Watts- 360 degrees coverage

Hennepin - 66 meters 70 watts into 11.5 dBi max power of 140 Watts -120 degrees coverage.
