Thank you for your suggestion. At this point in time, I am not able to mount any antenna's outdoors for I'm in an apartment at the present time and management doesn't allow that.PHOENIX_SCANNER said:Yeah, I have played with the settings and didn't notice any really big difference.
If you are having reception issues (transmissions breaking up), as many do, I have one suggestion.
Try an 800mhz yagi pointed at your nearest tower. This only works if no other tower is within 90 degrees of that direction. That should help you out. I am starting testing on this setup tonight to confirm this idea. Another guy on the east coast had to do this and it helped him greatly.
Due to the fact that most people's simulcast headaches seem to be too many sources at too strong of a level, don't worry about putting the yagi outside. If your rubber antenna sorta works inside with the scanner, a yagi (pointing in the correct direction) also located somewhere inside close to your scanner may be all you need. The person who is having lots of luck with a yagi stated several times it's not JUST bringing in only one of several simulcast towers better, it's attenuating all the rest sufficiently.jambo said:Thank you for your suggestion.
