base and handheld , both running the stock collapsible antennas. i have analog squelch so its just set to where the noise goes off. yes the delay is 2 seconds . I hear the Troop F base clear as a bell .Handheld or base scanner? Outdoor antenna, or the antenna that came with the scanner? What is your squelch set to? How much other stuff are you scanning? Do you have the default 2 second delay enabled on the NYSP frequencies?
There are so many variables to consider. It's not enough to just say "I don't hear them, why?"
