Finally broke down and bought a bcd436hp. Very versed with computers and used to follow scanners. but that was a long time ago with scanners. My last was a 200xlt and that was before trunking.
So I get my new unit. Install and update Sentinel and the 436 firmware. All goes well. I will be traveling all over now and why I went with this unit. I put in my current zip code and we get some activity in Osceola County FL and also in Orange County and some Orlando and Polk County. I move 20 miles or so into Lake County and cannot pick up any Lake County frequencies. Seems to scan and stop as if there is activity but no voices.
I also did the 3 upgrades from Uniden if that means anything.

If it pauses and there is no noise/voices does that mean it is encrypted? I looked in the RR database and did not see anything about it being encrypted (The mode says FM so I presume they are not encrypted).
Is it operator error or is there a problem with the radio? a setting needs to be changed? etc.

Are there any other places for me to do more research?

Please do not start a new topic to reply to an existing topic.

It appears that much of Lake County FL is encrypted.

(DE in the Mode column means full time encryption.)

The Florida forum at RadioReference is much more active, especially for regional issues.
