Distance to the source is not overly relevant, although to be 20db above noise, a signal certainly needs to be strong to trigger close call. I have seen situations where close call triggers 2-3+km from the signal source. So close is a relative term.dave3825 said:The close call works in all directions. Up, down, left, right. like stated, the signal needs to be close.
But its also transmitting with 20 Kw.Wirelessly posted (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; U; en-US) Gecko/20081217 Vision-Browser/8.1 301x200 LG VN530)
I've gotten NOAA weather radio on my GRE PSR-500's Sweeper (the same as Uniden's Close Call) and the transmitter is about 22 miles away.
....You're gonna have to get a little closer to the sat.Has anyone had any luck using the close call feature in the bcd396xt scanner I have tried but with no luck at all what other methods using the features in the bcd396xt scanner would you recommend using
