i have asked this before-thought i would try again. i have winston-salem/ forsyth county n c on my home patrol. it will work fine for a couple weeks-then vanish for a couple weeks. then-out of no where ,it will return-strong as ever. i have updated-even checked the freq. list on the machine,with radio reference list.-all the same. does any one have an idea?? i love this scanner. i hear so much that i never heard before. but,this is so frustrating.

Try your settings: Squelch: set to 2 bars. Range: set to 30 miles. Attenuator: make sure its turned off.

Also hit your menu button.
Click select service types.
Make sure these services are highlighted orange: EMS dispatch. Fire dispatch. Law dispatch. Multi dispatch.
Those are all your public safety dispatch calls.

Not a whole lot to go on from your info.

If it's a trunked system it might have a control channel that changes and one is missing.

sorry-yes it is a trunk system. i have manually checked the freq. list on the machine,with the list on radio reference{ winston-salem/forsyth county, n c} it is all there=but=somewhere-i believe a control channel is missing. i have had this problem for almost a year-the whole time that i have owned the scanner. other than that-this is a great scanner. i love every minute of listening. thanks for the advice.

If we had somewhat of a clue what system, someone might know.

Post a link to it.

One can often discern alternate control or even check the FCC liscense.

Did you post in RR state forum ?
