New to trunked scanners/scanners period. Went and bought one it was programmed when i got it, worked like a charm in the shop. drove home abt 40 miles away.... i cant even hear half of what i was hearing at the radio shop. I need Help!
See this thread in the Arkansas Regional Forum:Well the shop has their own tower for that city. so of course signal was great there. im trying to use the stock antenna but also used an antenna from the highest point of the roof of my home.... Still nothing. IDK what kind of system this has. but i know that there are towers around here that i should be programmed to and im not. i was told that when they programmed they forgot to program any other towers but thier own.... idk that just doesn't make sense to me at all.
oh boy! that wont make the owner happy! well guess we will be investing in another scanner shortly. We are getting the AWIN stuff with a few quirks, if it were a cb i would call it walking on top of other users. The biggest problem i am having is programing the analog frequencies. Things i could hear when i first brought the darn thing home i cannot hear at all now.I love my WS-1065, it is a great scanner for its intended use. But, not if you are attempting to scan a P25 digital simulcast system. Out of all of my digital scanners, the 1065 is the worst when it comes to linear simulcast modulation. It chokes and sputters and emits goofy garbled audio that is impossible to comprehend and monitor at all. It all depends on the mixes at the towers, but it happens at the worst times - when it gets real busy. Happy to say I invested in a pair of the SDS scanners and LSM is no longer an issue at my monitoring station. I have delegated other duties to my WS-1065 and it performs flawlessly as it was designed. I love the fact that it is lit up and easy to see. Simulcast? No. Everything else? The 1065 rocks.
