Here is my issue. I live in Southern NH. I have about 30' OmniX antenna. I'm using ARC XT to program the frequencies. I'm trying to program Worcester, Cambridge, Mass SP. I know I'm far from Worcester but I can pickup nearby cities with no problems. Same thing goes with Cambridge. I hear Boston Fire crystal clear.

Please refer to screenshot on how i'm programming. After I program I don't hear anything. I bring up Cambridge feed and I can hear transmission same with Worcester. I also notice if I'm holding on a channel it will say "Finding a Control Channel.

You will see the 2 check marks. I'm assuming I'm doing this right. What I did notice. Is some frequencies were missing so I manually added it in.

Thank You

my vote

goes to ....too far away.
just like you said.
if you are too far away and the radio can't hear the control channel that is what you get.

you could try putting in all the frequencies as conventional and see what happens, but then you might be hearing other systems
good luck
