Hi & welcome to the RR forums:
If you're aiming to monitor ICORRS, you'll need a handheld that can monitor P25 Phase-II. Note: All law enforcement is encrypted in Butler County, as is every talkgroup here identified as mode "DE" or "TE". It appears as if simulcast distortion could be a factor while monitoring the Butler County sites so my recommendation would be the Uniden SDS100 to best mitigate this.

Yes all police with exception of VA Butler police is encrypted. But their traffic is very light. And yes simulcast distortion is real heavy on ICORRS.

Leaving Fl for Butler Co in a month or so. What type of handheld would be appropriate?
I can say the SDS100 works the HP436HP can also work depending on where you are. In fact, I use to use that for the feed for butler county until I stop providing it. I have also used a Home Patrol 2. I used all three. But the only one that leaves the house is the SDS100.
