You image problems cannot be fixed, at least easily. I have the same problem
with a PRO-37. There is nothing you can do about it, it is problem with the
As far as CTCSS, this would work if the MA State was using it, but they are not
using it on the troop channels. The metro 28 channel trunk system, which in-
cludes the old metro troop and some of troop A (A, A5) use no tone on their
frequencies. It is trunked and is not required for their use. Some of the
conventional 800 state channels use tones:
A1 - Andover, A7 - Pebody 858.2375, use a Digital 051 (DPL) tone
C - Holden, C7 - Clinton 853.8375, use a CTCSS tone of 146.2
Statewide 866.0125, use a CTCSS tone of 156.7
There are more to add to the above, but I cannot think of them at this point in

Well, you could put a sharp cutoff low pass filter in the antenna circuit. It
would help quite a bit.
Other people have mentioned other possibilities.

What I have found is that the groupings being used here in Mass. are
not the same rotation as what the guys in NJ are talking about... but I
suspect that because our system is still growing things are not set
in stone just yet.
I have one of the new MTS2000 portables and will be getting a new
mobile very soon... when I do... I'll see if I can figure out the groupings.
Right now...the old "Met" system sites are the only ones being used for
the trunking of Troop A. The Andiver site, Holt Hill, is supposed to be
the next site up for trunking. Robbins Hill in Chelmsford was supposed
to be next... but I heard something about Nabscott Hill too. I guess
we'll have to wait. I can tell you that the coverage in many places
outside of 128 is very marginal! But give it time!
