My understanding of Simulcast is the issue of multiple transmitters on the same frequency. RISCON doesn't do that. Each of the four towers is on its own frequency so simulcast shouldn't be a general issue. The only time there might be an issue is for an agency like Warwick FD which appears to transmit/receive on both the north and south towers. If you're in a location where you can receive both those towers, it's possible to lock in on the weaker signal which could degrade your scanner reception of the signal. But most other agencies only operate on a single tower. Am I missing something here?So you don't set anything to simulcast. Simulcast refers to the trunking system transmitting on the same frequency, simultaneously, from multiple transmitter locations. ("Towers" if you will). The issue comes with how the scanner decodes the signal and is able to keep everything lined up, so the signal is clean with no dropouts. Most, almost all conventional trunking scanners can not do this. Uniden developed a scanner, the SDS series, specifically to resolve this issue and work like commercial radios on simulcast trunking systems. While it's not exactly the case, the scanners DO perform much much better on simulcast systems like RISCON, CLMRN in Connecticut , CoMIRS in Western Mass. You'll see a lot of threads in the Uniden forums here on these.
