Now i see this message... oh well maybe if he (Lindsay) only sets one up they can set it up for north side and I can get mine set up for the south side audio. Beats the hell out of me why they cant just link the whole county together...seems like it would make sense that way.
But none the less I have a location to set my PSR-800 up about 4 miles south of PG County in St. Mary's County whenever the rest of my stuff comes in for me to do so. Hope to have it running by Christmas or so if RR's Scanner isn't covering the whole county by then.
FYI: I Set The Southern Maryland Fire/EMS Mutual Aid Feed to have PG County Fire Dispatch Set as Priority for Now, so at least you can hear some of the dispatches.
I live just north of the PG Co. line in Howard Co. I cannot listen to the north side site. Won't lock on. Have good signal, but according to GRE, the radio can't discriminate between signals coming from two or more transmitters in different locations on the same control channel. They get to the radio at different times (milliseconds) and the radio can't handle it. I've tried all sorts of things to try to receive it with not much luck. The funny part is that when the radio is connected to my outdoor HDTV antenna pointing south, I can pickup the southside transmitter and talkgroups fairly well, but not the north. Driving around with the radio, I can get the north side very well when I'm near I-95 at Rt198. That should be no surprise since the transmitter is at Sweitzer Lane. I can receive in some parts of Laurel, but not all. Seems to work well in Bowie. Very frustrating.
