Just got that comet for my 436 and noticed a huge improvement! Thanks for the infoI was in the Dayton area most of the day and had my HP-2 and BCD436HP with me.
The HP-2 worked great in the car with a mag mounted Laird TRAB7603 Phantom antenna on the roof. The 436 using a Comet CH-32 inside the car received perfectly using a FL with the new firmware and a manual and 8 threshold setting. It didn't do nearly as well using the database though.
Montgomery County actually sounded better than the MARCS simulcast sites do in Franklin County. I did notice as soon as I crossed into Greene County the Montgomery County reception dropped significantly.
The BC785D is not capable of trunk-tracking true P25 systems like Ohio MARCS. All you could do is program the site frequencies in conventional mode and scan them that way.Trying to program the above scanner has an apco 25 card in it. Used the pro scan to download from radio reference and programmed the scanner but not picking anything up? Any ideas? Thanks in advanced.
So if I had a newer scanner would I be able to not go through a Simulcast site and not have to worry about simulcast distortion? If so, what would be my best option that's out there?Yes your Pro-96 will work on Montgomery Counties Simulcast site and I believe your Uniden will as well. However with that said depending on where you live be prepared for possible simulcast distortion which is a common problem with scanners monitoring these types of systems.
