I get terrible decoding for phase 2 in Pasadena, tx on the TX WARN P25 network. Does anyone have success in receiving these transmissions? If so, what tweaks or setting adjustments were made?

Well, there you go. No consumer scanner is going to be reliable for simulcast systems. Search the forums, you will find much discussion on this problem and possible solutions.


That's funny because my uniden performs great for it. It's only Pasadena where I trouble with whistler.

You need a directional antenna or a YAGI antenna and aim it at the site,use good quality coax.
Or do what I do and use a wire hanger with its hook cut off and a 75 ohm balun and the connectors you need to attach it to the scanner and it will decode at least 97 percent of the time.
