I put in 99336 and the BCES system is loading as a scanned system with the Sheriff's channels.

So, that leaves either traffic (maybe they aren't talking much) reception (maybe you aren't in range of their signals) or bad data (RRDB missing information) as most-probable causes.

I've been a reserve deputy for 35 years, and a scanner listener
longer than that :-)
there are at least three agency's being dispatched from the Benton County
dispatch center. Kennewick PD, Richland PD, and the Benton county Sheriff.
there is plenty of traffic. I live in the middle of the area,
and have been listening to these agency's for years, so location isn't
an issue. Which leaves bad data ??
what can I do to help you get the data you need ??

thanks

What specific info do you put into your other scanners to receive those channels? From here, I can only make guesses without more input...

Since Benton County went Digital I can't hear them, that's why I bought
the HP. I noticed on the DB today that Benton County Public Safety is
still listed as Motorola but not P25 ?
could that be whats wrong ? under that listing is the dispatch's

the local newspaper is using the Uniden BCD 396XT and is hearing
all the trunked digital.

You are looking at the old system. See the system I linked to above (in blue, bold). The BCES system carries PD/FD traffic, now (according to RRDB ).

Try holding on just that system for a while. Do you get a signal strength indication? If you hold/scroll through the channels on that system, do the channels appear in the list?

from Art KF7ETB

I locked the scanner on
Benton County Emergency Services
Kennewick
Police Dispatch, Law Dispatch 4848

it shows modulation on the signal strength bars
but I don't hear any audio.

tapping next , it goes to 5008, then 5488, back to 4848.

buy the way, I'm now getting Washington State Patrol.
that update worked :-)

thanks
