when multiple digital signals on the same frequency overlap, it can be impossible for a conventional receiver to correctly decode bits from the signal.
Bit decoding errors are not presently a concern, because Utah still uses a Type II. The project to upgrade has been met with delay after delay.

There are some P25 groups on our statewide system, all encrypted, but aprox. 95% of the traffic is analog FM.

The simulcast that everyone says is a problem only applies to P25 digital simo locations. All our simo sites are analog and I've never had any problems base or mobile all over the place. Cheapo trunk trackers or SDS200, they all work. Now, if/when UCA goes P25, the situation may change.

Is that conditional based on funding availability, or is that a done deal now?
