I rec'd my home patrol II. I programmed it. it looks like the data base has the old channels/freqs. how does the base get updated? I am in Schuylkill county pa. 17901. the county went to the Motorola P25 system. a few ems & fire are still on the old system which I am picking up, but the local police depts. have switched to the new system which I am not picking up. what to do? also how do I enable the discovery mode? thanks RSK

From the help files in your Sentinel software:

Update Databases:

Open Sentinel. Select Update/Update HPDB Databases or select the Update Master HPDB icon ( Update HPDB ).
Sentinel updates the HomePatrol database in stages. When the update is complete, Sentinel displays a completion screen. Click OK.
NOTE: Update time varies. The update could take as long as 5 minutes depending on network speed and PC performance.

You must then "write" to the Home Patrol to transfer the updates to the scanner.

Correct... There is no scanner on the market that can monitor encrypted communications, it is illegal to do so.

No channels have been identified on the Schuylkill system at this time. Once a channel has been identified and added to the database at RadioReference, this system will come into the HomePatrol database with the next weekly update.

Sorry for bringing up a REALLY old thread for my first post...but I'm also in Schuylkill County, PA and am looking to either pick up a Homepatrol 1 or 2. Will either pick up anything for my area? Very new to radio but looking to learn as much as I can.
