Default Want to listen to West Palm Beach.

Just got an APX8000. In one zone are the freq's for the Boca P25 system. No trunking. All the freq's are conventionally entered, & in a scan list. The town is small enough that there are rarely 2 conversations at the same time, so the radio can keep up by conventionally scanning all the freq's, & I'm able to follow the conversation. Trying to do the same with the new WPB city system. Got the freq's from the list on RR, but I don't hear anything. Is there something special about WPB, or are they using phase 2? Any tips here? I have no interest in using the non affiliate method, as WPB is a small town, & the radio should be able to keep up like it does with Boca.

Any channel in a Harris system can be used as a control channel. May be locking on to one of those.
