Are you guys that are listening St. Joe Countys new P25 system having trouble with high err rates? My 436 is all over the place and tried a lot of settings how you doing?

Yes, the p25 appears to be more "narrow banded" then moto. And distance for receiving CC is less from the same individual sites before the upgrade.

Time to break out the yagi / directional ant or re-position the yagi. If one site goes stale on a simulcast, I always try another site with the yagi / directional ant.

Ours started in low power mode for the first few days, then they went full power, so that might be the case up their also... Only time will tell...

Agreed. I haven't had much time to play with settings but both my TRX-1 and 436Hp are getting crushed and missing transmissions when not hooked up to a yagi. Hopefully I can tweak some things and/or they play with the power output as the week goes on and it helps.

My 436hp is doing pretty well with manual 8 threshold. But the TRX is still useless around town when not hooked up to the yagi at home.

Do you have a link to this story? I noticed units have the new SafeT RID scheme but figured with both being p25 the interop is even easier than before. I don't see why they would ditch their relatively new voice and data system. Plus its a nice backup for our county if SafeT has issues.
