Rock County Sheriff Reception Issue

#1 Post by aleckrohto » 27 Jan 2019 16:23

I was wondering if anybody else is having this issue. I live very close to the NH border in Essex County and when I try to listen to the Rock County Sheriff on BCD325P2, the signal is always breaking up even though I have full bars of coverage. I read on RR that the issue I am having is because they switched to LSM and scanners can't decode that. I was wondering if anybody had any tricks that may be in the same boat as me with trying to receive Rock County.

The Uniden SDS-200 does not have this issue. The BCD536HP also does much better with these type systems. The closest thing to a solution for my BCD996XT is to turn the attenuation on for those channels in question to try to eliminate receiving multiple sites at the same time.
