460.0625 and 460.21250 those are the nearest towers to me I tried other towers that is not as close and got the same results.. But If I move the scanner around while hearing the digital noise the noise stops and it comes in fine.. So I am not sure if it is a antenna issue or what...I'm not in Kentucky and don't know your exact situation, but I'd like to interject that if you're listening to P25, your scanner would need to be in "carrier squelch" FM (at least on the ones I have). Could it be possible that the band opened sometime last night and you are hearing a non-P25 system coming through? I am aware that the Kentucky and Tennessee area has some very strong NXDN and MotoTRBO implementations. Your scanner won't decode either of those and would give you a motorboating noise in the FM mode.
If that is what's happening, chances are that KSPs radios are programmed to only decode their system, so they would not likely be affected by it, unless the signal level of the offending system(s) become so high that they overtake the KSP system. That kind of interference is very common on VHF, where one system's output might be another's input. It's less common on UHF because of the standardized pairings.
Out of curiosity, what frequencies did you have this coming through on?
I am in the western part of the state 35 or so miles from Ind. I guess it was just stopped getting a good single for what ever reason.. I put a different antenna on it and it seems fine now.. weird..Well, I don't know for sure if your issue is not having a sufficient signal level to start decoding, or that you're hearing something your scanner cannot decode. I suppose either is possible.
I can say that in or around Kentucky you have these non-P25 digital systems within propagation distance
NXDN narrow systems
WNQA716 - Logan County
WQOX539 - Maury County
NXDN wide systems
WQOH298 - City of Williamsburg
WQNC416 - Carroll County
WQCH954 - Houston County
WQKS271 - Loveland City Schools
These are all on 460.2125 MHz (sorry, I didn't have time to check the other frequency).
Anything P25 would be KSP.
I don't know where you are in relation to any of those, but under conditions it would be possible to receive some of them.
I don't see any Phase 2 emissions on the licenses at this point. That doesn't mean they're not doing it, but they're supposed to add the emission designator to the license when they do or they may get fined.Well it could be phase 2 im over in Pike County no Problems hearing them. A few of the smaller PD are going encrypted like coal run village next to pikeville and i think p berg is. Now left beaver in floyd county as i know of are now using a pager system and short range radio's. You may be able to put a discriminator tap on your scanner and thin use your computer and a program to hear encrypted stuff not sure though.
