So this will completely fix your P25 threshold for The Countywide System. Make sure all of your cell site that you created have these values. All of your choppy transmission should clear upAnyone know what is the best p25 threshold for the countywide coordinated system for the orange county area I have a bcd436hp but p25 sounds choppy for this are please help thanks
Honestly if you rely on wanting to hear the RED channel program the current system and the newer P25 system. Since the newer P25 system is still in the testing phase talkgroups like 4N and 5N and also RED and AIRCALL go live on the system and then the test system is not carrying any of the talkgroups. The other day I was hearing 5-B and 2-E running dispatch and then its goes off the air. So it seems like radio comms is testing different talkgroups all the time. Also, the P25 test system is not receivable through out the whole county of orange right now. Its spotty on where you live. I believe the test site is at ORCO Fire Authority in Irvine. Not a 100 percent sure.My solution to the problem is to listen to Red channel on the newer P25 system, rather than the older Smartzone simulcast system. The P25 system only carries a handful of talkgroups, so I only use it for Red channel, but it isn't choppy like it is on the older system.
Interesting reception problem considering your location.The whole point is that Red channel reception on the current system is unreliable (for me and the OP, at least), so monitoring it on that system isn't realistic. My experience has been that regardless of any other talkgroups on the experimental P25 system, it has always carried Red channel, and it has always been reliable if you are within range of it (which I am, in central OC). However, because the other talkgroups come and go on that system, I only use it to monitor Red channel. I listen to everything else on the current system.

1. Digital Wait Time = 0 ms
2. Digital Threshold mode = manual
3. Digital Threshold Level = 10
These are the best settings for the BCD436HP and the BCD536HP.
