    Mode as in modulation or something else? The systems are programmed to use NFM Digital audio only (not auto). I suppose I could try to use the wider FM mode.

If I turn it on using Hold+power (which activates the hidden P25 menu items), decoding improves a bit. Was that supposed to be a feature of the updated firmware or is it supposed to use the hidden menu settings at all times regardless of power up mode?

      Exactly my suggestion. They may not be using NFM mode. Try FM. Joe M.
