I just purchased the HP this past week and so far I am enjoying it with my collection of scanners. However, when I try both the zip code and or city name I am not picking up any Washington, DC police or Fire channels. I am receiving all the area jurisdictions including VA, and MD but not DC. Maybe UPMAN can advise.

See www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=315 and www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=234.

I put in 20066 as a zip code and both the conventional and trunked systems linked above loaded.

Ok, that is strange, I just tried again and I am not getting that. My firmware is 1.02 but my database version is 7/2/1010. For some reason last night it would not download the latest database info so could that be the issue?

Database is almost certainly the issue.

Ok thanks! Any idea why my firmware updated but not the database?

Did you "Write to HomePatrol" after updating the database in Sentinel?
