I am using a diamond antenna rh77ca about $22 from Ham Radio Outlet. Definitely gets better reception with distance then the stock antenna.Oh yea! I have mine now and love it. Good luck with your new unit. I have no problem receiving p25 systems in the Salem area, mainly Salem FD and State PD. What I like most about sds100 is the replay feature it comes in handy more than you would think!
Are you hearing Salem FD on the OSRP state system? Or are they on some new system? Last I heard they were still on the old analog Smartnet trunk system, called ‘Salem A Tower’ in the RR database.<snip> I have no problem receiving p25 systems in the Salem area, mainly Salem FD and State PD. <snip>
