possible to get 'cross-talk' in ohio when using control channel only mode?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was wondering it is at all possible to get any kind of cross-talk in ohio, from one trunked system to the other that is the same type.

What I mean by this is, lets say you are listening to Ohio MARCS and are in Summit County ohio. Summit county ohio has the summit countywide trunked system.

Both systems utilize a mixed analog 3600 bps control channel / motorola digital voice.

If you were listening to MARCS via control channel only mode and only had the MARCS control channel programmed in, would it be possible to accidently pick up a summit county talkgroup conversation? This would with using a wildcard set in your marcs TG list.

Im using a psr-500.
Thanks

Or if you placed the Summit system control channel in your MARCS freq list.

Crosstalk is a type of interference where one system disrupts the signal of another. Is that what you're talking about? If so then yes but only if the systems are close together in location and/or frequency and if your receiver can't discriminate between the two frequencies.

If you're talking about hearing a TG from one system on the other then no unless you have the Control Channel of one system programed into the other. Your scanner will follow the instructions on the CC only so, even if the TG IDs are repeated in the different systems, you will only hear the TGs in your target system.
