Hillsborough County Florida Sheriffs Office recently opened a new district five. Its been open for a week and I cant listen to the calls due to it not being in the database. Does anyone know how often Home Patrol updates their databases to bring in new districts?

The master database updates in the scanner are available through the Sentinel software on a weekly basis, and are derived from the Radio Reference database at this link:

www.radioreference.com/apps/db/

The RR database is a member driven resource that lists frequencies/talkgroups that have been verified as being in use in their particular areas by listeners such as yourself. Raw info that is published at the FCC database site is not automatically added to the RR database.

When someone in your area can verify the system info you are interested in as it starts being used, they/you should submit that new info to RR here:

www.radioreference.com/apps/submit/

By following these guidelines:

wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/RR_Database_Submission_Guidelines

The database admins will consider the submissions, and then add them to the Radio Reference database. The master database in the scanner is updated every Monday from the RR database. If no one has submitted the updated info to RR, it won't be available in the weekly scanner database updates.

In the mean time if you know the info for the new systems, you can create a favorites list in Sentinel, upload that to your scanner, and start scanning that system immediately.
