I don't know. On a regular scanner all I hear is white noise when they transmit. On the 536 I don't hear anything.

Ellis County S.O. Channel 2 has been digital only for a while. I have heard no analog transmissions on it for quite some time. It's P25 conventional digital, and the NAC code in the database, 342, is correct.

That 'white noise' you're hearing is a digital transmission on a channel set as analog. Update the Sentinel database to get the correct settings and write that to the scanner (it sounds like you are not using a Favorites list, just location & main database).

If you've you've updated Sentinel, and sent that to the scanner, you did not correct the existing Favorites list to make it digital. Either re-append from the main database, or manually edit it.

I'm sure ECSO is digital. I haven't been able to hear them for a while on the "old" scanner. I'm a police officer for Ennis and a year of two ago our radio guy said that Ellis Co ch 2 went digital a while back, but at the time I hadn't considered inquiring about how to monitor them. From listening to the transmissions, I believe Ferris PD dispatch has converted to digital? (someone please look) If that's the case, I have them in my favorite list and can hear them well. Which is confusing because if Ferris is digital and in the same favorite list, I should be able to hear ECSO as well.

I'm getting frustrated with it. Maybe I should get someone to program it for me
