I just received my new PSR-800 from Santa this morning and am experiencing programming difficulties. I live in Brantford Ontario and have programmed in my Fleetnet system using the supplied software. When I start scanning, all I am receiving is the Brantford site. I switched my antenna to my PSR 500 and all sites are booming in as usual. My antenna is a Sinclair Comercial grade VHF mounted 20 ft above my roof and I easily pull in any sites within 30km. I noticed in the program there is some adjustment for mult-site data thresholds.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

If you want to hear a 2nd site on a system you need to duplicate the system in the software and remove the Brantford site from the 2nd because the 800 will lock onto the strongest (or first strong signal it finds) and stick with it, unlike the 500 did. Once you have a 2nd copy of the system without Brantford controls, it will lock onto those. You'll need to associate those with an appropriate scanlist as you normally would to keep them separated.
