I am in Colorado Springs and I can't seem to receive any of the CS talkgroups. I have a WS-1080 and pickup everything else on the DTRS without a problem. I have a scanlist with only the CS talkgroups programmed and nothing but crickets.
Appreciate any suggestions.

I recommend programming El Paso County and DTRS Zone 4 (RFSS 4) sites as their own system outside of the rest of DTRS. El Paso County and Colorado Springs talkgroups will generally not be heard on non-Zone 4 sites, and non-El Paso County and Colorado Springs talkgroups will generally not be heard on Zone 4 sites.

Colorado Springs talkgroups will heavily prefer Colorado Springs Simulcast, so you will very likely experience simulcast distortion.

Thanks, I'll give that a try. I just programmed the CS Simulcast site as a seperate system and I hear some things but it seems like there should be a lot more.

FYI You need a Yagi antenna unless you have a Uniden SDS 100 or 200. or If you are within range of the other towers out in the county
