Are you getting "something" (as in fire, EMS etc.), or absolutely nothing?

If absolutely nothing, you might try entering all the frequencies for the site, not just those listed as control channels. Its possible they could be using something identified as a voice channel for control channel purposes.

I noticed this is a simulcast system. It's my belief that older model scanner don't deal with simulcast systems too well - they seem to improve with each model. You might try taking the scanner to within 1/4 mile of transmitter/site and see if you receive something. If you do, that pretty much confirms simulcast distortion situation at your home.

And, unfortunately, just throwing out possibilities even the far-fetched ones, they might have encrypted their comms, but database hasn't been updated.
