Were you able to hear everything setting it to 'P25 AUTO' versus 'P25 MANUAL'? IF that's the case, I guess I'll change what I currently have programmed...

New talk groups appear every day or so.
1410, 8301
I hear Lewis University security using 141, apparently evaluating, numerous complaints about poor signal. This is odd because the campus is very near 2 of the towers.
201 Romeoville EMA?

Yeah, I've heard quite a few users stating they couldn't copy someone. It makes me wonder if some of the weirdness I see on my radio is also happening the system's users. Lewis is so near one tower it is truly line of sight at ground level and another is just below some ground cover. There's no reason why they should have difficulty.

Soo...are you able to hear the system through your Pro-197 programmed as "P25 MANUAL" or "P25 AUTO"?

Fun times, Will County is making changes.
The licenses for the River System, which has been off the air, have been modified as of July 28, to add a transmitter location at Braidwood.
WNNB544 was modified to remove Wescom location, add Braidwood, and add a new frequency, 854.3375, which is included in the current county-wide P25 system. There are now 6 freqs, previously 4 (only 3 were used), in what was the River System. I've only been monitoring one at a time on the USB dongle so far. I am getting weak signal at my location on 854.3375. Am I hearing Braidwood? If that were being used in the county-wide I would get it at full strength like I do the others. I live very near 2 of the sites.
