Default not hearing anything on a dmr frequency

My 325P2 has all the latest updates and DMR firmware. I have a frequency programed in to my scanner that had no Color Code or anything programed into it, then i was able to find the CC by monotoring the freq some more so i pluged that in to the channel. Now whenever that frequency transmits you cant hear anything but the signal bars at the top have 5 bars displayed. You just don't hear anything during a transmission. Am I missing something? I programed everything in correctly. I even tryed changing the threshold. I must be missing something! Any thoughts or ideas as to what i am doing wrong?

Do the talkgroup & radio ID appear on the screen? Talkgroup isn't encrypted? If you set the color code back to Search are you able to hear transmissions again?

The talkgroup appears but i dont think the radio ID does. This is a conventional frequency. I don't think it is encrypted. When i keep toggling the CC on and off i get the same results for both.

http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsS...licKey=3866145

Frequency: 462.825 CC5
Some of the other frequencies the college has is anolog as well looks like all frequencies are licensed for DMR and anolog. I may be wrong.

Thanks

No noise at all? No data bursts or "R2D2 audio" in search mode?

Completely silent. Maybe once I caught a data burst but that's it. Lasted like one second. No R2D2 audio either. Lol

Any updates?

I monotored the same frequency yesterday. Still nothing. Just the 5 signal bars up at the top, no voice. I changed every setting I could think of.

Listen to that frequency when you have it programmed as analog conventional and listen to the data. If it is a constant repeating pattern of data then it is not transmitting any conversations. If it is varying data for a second and then goes back to the idle pattern it is just sending some data traffic. If it sends conversations it will be a non repeating pattern for several seconds which ends with a second or two of a constant pattern.
