I've had it for several years and this is the first time for a full database upgrade. Now, very few of my channels work. Why? And is there a way I can go back to the old database?

I bought my HP-1 last month. Downloaded the latest firmware and DB and set it next to my RadioShack Pro-652. The HP has been as good or better than the PRO-652 except for some of my local law channels. I checked with some folks I know at the county and they reported that the system runs P25 Phase 1. I was worried that they upgraded...

Everything in the DB seems right at the channel level but I think the issue is the next level up in the DB. I pick my state - WI and then my county - Barron. There are three scopes available - Nationwide, Statewide, and County Systems. When I pick County Systems it shows only two entires.

System Name - Barron, System Type - Conventional
System Name - Businesses, System Type - Conventional

Under the System Name - Barron, there are the law, Amateur, and so on. In our county some local law is on conventional but the county and some municipalities are P25. They are all listed under System Name -Barron and System Type - Conventional.

Is this why I can't hear the law dispatch on the HP? If so, how do I go about resolving this issue?

Subject: Where do the NOAA stations go? Brazoria County TX - by: Trav http://homepatrol.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=18&id=17401&Itemid=38#17401 http://homepatrol.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=18&id=17401&Itemid=38#17401
This morning we could hear, with attendant static, the NOAA station for Bay City, Tx, WWG40 @ 162.425 MHz. Now, I can't hear a thing from it.
Actually, given our location, and based on the NOAA maps, it seems that we should be receiving the Galveston as it appears that we are much further inside the mapped broadcast radius for KHB40, 162.550 MHz, yet I have as yet to ever hear anything from this station.

I have also noticed that if turn the HP-1 off, it reverts back to weather channel 1, 162.550 MHz.

If I go to Weather Alert, I get a message that says Signal Lost. Then it has an option to cancel or search for new (which appears to just roll through the 10 NOAA channels).

The NOAA websites all say that the two channels above are operating normally.

Well, heck, I decided to take the scanner outside and started to get WWG40 again. Still poor reception. It must be one of those classic antenna / atmospheric conditions etc. kinda things. Still lost about Galveston.]]>
