I live in Bellevue; have an exterior antenna. I get Plattsmouth tower CC 99% and lots of traffic. I cannot get any CC signal for Omaha using 172.60000 or 173.76250. Tried the other non-CC freqs also 171.43750, 172.28750. Is Omaha down?

I can receive it in old town Bellevue right now with a VHF rubber duck on 173.7625 at above 75%.

I'm just south of Bellevue...

...I notice what seems to be a bit of interference with the Omaha tower's CC. It seems to swing WILDLY in signal strength, and when I try to decode it, it will just seemingly drop offline...I'll watch the decode percentage drop to zero and then it won't come back, no matter what I'm seeing on the scanner, though, usually, I see a corresponding reduction in signal strength at the receiver.

I have to actually roll off the freq then back to it to get the decoder to kick back in...I'm using both Pro96Com and Unitrunker and this is true whether I use the GRE or the Uniden scanner to feed the programs...meanwhile, Sarpy's system and the Plattsmouth tower chug along just fine.

Know that probably doesn't help much, but I don't think you're going crazy.

Peace.
