5826Receiving Saginaw county's system on the BCD396xt
- Sep 29, 2011I hope this isn't off topic and if so I apologize but Had a question about
the Saginaw County system in Michigan on the BCD396xt.
I was looking over the forum on RR today about the Saginaw County system.
I seen an article on multipath signals .
Here it is for you to look at too.
and wondered if anyone ever tried to use the Attenuator on the scanner and
how good that worked?
Did it cause the signal to drop just enough to get rid of the problem or did
it make the problem worse?
and can you adjust the Attenuation level on a channel with this scanner or
is it stuck to only one level of 10 db like my other scanner used to be?.
I can give a report on my question about how well it worked for me, once i
get the scanner in my hands come Christmas as well.
I was thinking I'd try it as well, but wanted to see what the rest of you
thought and if it worked or not.
Because this exact same problem used to happen to me using my older digital
scanner before it went to pots.
I'm not expecting the system to come in clearer with the BCD396XT i just
figured ok, time for a better scanner with more features and the ability to
scan ltr as i have a few of those systems I like to listen to but couldn't
with the older scanner.
I live in Albee township. And even the fire chief whose a friend of mine
said to me that his radio gets bad reception half the time where he's
located and he's not far down the road from me.
But anyway anyone having any luck scanning that system or is it a bear to
scan even after attenuating the signal?
Sorry to ask so many questions i just was curious if attenuating the signal
helps solve this issue of distorted digital transmition for anyone scanning
the Saginaw county TRS here in Michigan.
