General Quincy/South Shore area.

TGS heard on it include 109, 110.

159.9125 isn't in the standard FCC channel plan, which makes this even more interesting.

Re: General Attic Antenna Observation - Looking For Input

Are you comparing the Same Freq on both antenna's ? with the same Radio ? Different radios handle the P25 slightly different, especially with Simulcast transmitters [different sites transmitting at the same time - mostly an issue with Trunking] Also it could be something with your cables, connection...

Re: Trouble receiving Cape Fire.

As had been mentioned, always program "ALL" of the Control channels for the Zone/Site you want to monitor, as the Control Channels [CC] do tend to rotate as needed.
