Default MSP-GRE/PSR-500

Please bear with me as I am new to this:

Has anybody else had reoccuring issues with the MSP trunked freq going dark? I executed the firmwhere update and am now able to pick up MA Environmental PD, but MSP is still lacking.
I have gone so far as create an entire new profile using the Win500 program, re-importing all towers and talkgroups, but have not been able to alter the outcome.
I am suprised as I was under the impression that they share the same towers.
Any insite would be appreciated- Thank you-

You did not say which zone your missing but MSP zone 5 has been rebanded and the CC has changed.Please go to Scan New England site to get the correct info.

Make sure that you have the new control channels for the zones you are interested in. There have been some recent changes and it's all moving along. You have to keep up to date.

I just updated the system frequencies for zone 5 the other day so the radioreference database should be up to date.

You should be monitoring the site/zone closest to you. I would only monitor multiple zones if you are within range of them. If the site/zone you are monitoring has been rebanded be sure to program in ALL the frequencies in that zone, as the control channels seem to be rotating more now.
