On a more serious note:

I’ve been having difficulty picking up this system for a couple of weeks. My PRO-668 with my high-gain 700/800 duck sits on my home office desk. Usually I can just move it around a little and see the “S” turn to a “T” but lately it’s almost impossible to get a signal. I was hoping that with all the leaves off the trees by now it would only get easier. Anybody know of any Tx changes?

If you're trying to track either of the simulcast cells, then you might try lowering the gain, not increasing it. Less is often more when it comes to simulcast P25 systems. Try turning on attenuation and see if that helps.

Thanks for the advice but my apologies for not mentioning that I already tried that. I turned on attenuation and also used antennas with less gain, and combinations thereof.

Tonight I moved my scanner to a window and I was able to lock onto a signal. This gives me the impression that I’m getting less signal at my desk than I used to. I have a window suction-cup rig I use when I travel, I’ll try that tomorrow.
