I just put up an antenna outside and I'm very close to the local analog trunked system site. I'm also not very far away from the local digital system site. I've noticed a little distortion on the digital system and while I don't think it's because the signal is too hot, I haven't noticed it before. I'm also not picking up much activity at all on the very close analog system.

Should I use attenuation or will it be OK?

can't hurt

it can not hurt to try it.
if you are that close why do you have an outside antenna?
i guess to hear other things.
if you could , just try attenuation around the "big guns"
as in a per channel basis or system not global.

I'm thinking that attenuation can be applied to each site on a trunked system.

Some folks are using attenuation to help improve distortion on simulcast systems. Otherwise attenuation is only beneficial for interference situations and the incoming signal on a frequency needs to be dampened.
