The Ohio County WV Public Safety trunked system is three-site simulcast Motorola P25 system.

Monitoring the System

You will need a digital scanner to monitor this system. Recommended scanners are the GRE PSR-500 and PSR-600, the Radio Shack PRO-96, PRO-2096, PRO-197 and PRO-106, and the Uniden BCD396T, BCD996T, BCD396XT and BCD996XT.

Being that this is a simulcast P25 digital system, you may have problems monitoring the system due to simulcast digital distortion. If you do encounter this problem, you should attempt to get a directional antenna and aim it at the closest tower site or, better yet, aim your directional antenna in such a way that it nulls out the weaker two sites.
