MSP talk groups cross traffic

Post by AFD94 »

Tried to find something on this before posting but didn’t have too much luck. I run a BCD325P2 at home on Zone 5 & 8. Occasionally I’ll hear traffic from a TG as the scanner shows a different channel. Example earlier today I heard one of the A Patrol channels but the radio was showing Event 2. I know that the traffic wasn’t on Event 2 as I had an 800 radio set to that channel. I checked to make sure the TGs were not programmed wrong also.

Thanks

Do you have the talkgroups labeled properly? Double check those, then if it is something beyond that we can better help you, thanks.

If the real radio with Events 2 did not hear the traffic, I would follow garys advise first.

My other thought was going to be a patch or multi-select, but the "REAL" radio would have handled that.

Yes I did include that they were checked for accuracy. My 996T seemed to do it a lot. Maybe just gremlins
