      There are a lot of factors. Many systems are set up where you can't hear
      them outside their boundaries, others are just plain set up wrong and if
      your radio isn't programmed for the correct timing it just won't work right,
      poor design, and much more affect things. Simulcast is really a bad and
      cheap way of doing things. Indy paid for separate sites and so forth in the
      contract but with "cost overruns" Moto ended up building out a junk
      simulcast system with out of spec timing. Result is poor coverage, poor
      reception and that’s just for the subscriber radios. Scanners can't pick the
      system up in some parts of Marion County...... and Moto is in no hurry to
      fix it, neither is MECA for that matter..... at least not until a police
      officer or firefighter die because of it......

      Would I be right in thinking that this problem is really "a fact of life"
      with Simulcast in fringe (overlap) areas. Also that the degree of the
      problem is as much, if not more so, a function of the System design and
      implementation than the performance of the receiver (Scanner).

      What system is it, maybe someone can help you with setting up some settings
      to help. That said, your asking a $500 scanner to do what, on some systems a
      $3000 or $5000 user radio can't do either......

      I would like to see it do a better job of decoding P25 simulcast systems.
      The PSR-800 does a better job, but is clumsy when trying to make talk group
      changes on the fly.

      What additional features or options would you want or need ?
      I can't think of any at this time.
