I live just 5 miles south of Berrien County, Michigan yet I never hear them. I get in the P25 out of Jones but I never hear anything from Berrien.
For instance, if you want to be able to hear all the traffic on the statewide system that is in Berrien County, you'd need (at least):
338 grand beach
Then, add to that any sites that are bordering Berrien Co (because radios may affiliate with a site outside of the county if the units are closer to those towers at the time).
For reference - check the RRDB - http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=100
If you can't hear any of the sites physically in Berrien Co, it is unlikely that you will hear much of the Berrien Co traffic that is on the MPSCS.
Thanks for the replies. I have those 4 programmed in perfectly like you list. The strange thing is I am sitting here listening to Van Buren County out of the Jones area. No bars on the signal strength meter are even registering yet it is coming in so crystal clear it is amazing. I also hear Cass County, St Joseph County and Michigan State Police traffic. It is nice to listen to. I heard Sumnerville coming in very faint also. In the meantime I'm amazed to monitor Van Buren County and will keep my ears open for any kind of Berrien County radio traffic. It'd be interesting to see how the 996 performs on the road.
