Can anyone hear anything out of Overton County? Putnam County comes through perfect but I live right between these 2 counties and would like to listen to both. I have Sheriff, Rescue, Fire and EMS from both in the radio. Like I said, Putnam works just fine.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I was in Overton about a month ago and heard maybe 4 short transmissions from the Sheriffs Dept I think. I have always had issues with that system as well. Last I heard it was an IP Site Connect system like Putnam. I have ran DSD+ on a few of Overtons frequencies and always get a bunch of data transmissions that say something about Tier 3 stuff, definitely different than anything I've seen from Putnam. I do know years ago when they first went to DMR they were fully encrypted at that time. Maybe they are running Hytera equipment or something, I have no idea.

I live in Putnam and I have the SDS100 on a discone Antenna and I can get Overton Co and Livingston PD just fine from my house.... and I live in the City of Cookeville. But... Going the other direction (and it's closer) I can't hardly get squat from White County. LOL

I live in Wayne Co. KY just across the state line and I'm hearing Livingston PD and EMS loud and clear.

I live in Rickman and cannot get Livingston PD or EMS lately. I can go a mile up the road and get them fine.

Just FYI, if you are using a 3 digit number for the talkgroup, add 67 in front. Ie tg 901 would be 67901. That may be your problem. I see livingstone pd is showing 901. All talkgroups for Overton start with 67.

Same for White county, all start with 93.

Also after further looking at the database, I may need to submit some changes to it. Sheriff and Livingston pd are on the same frequency, just different time slots. That may be another problem.
