This place is a little slow on the weekends, so you might not get any direct help until a weekday.

Assuming you have the correct radio with everything properly programmed, I think Andalusia and Opp might be a little too far from Dothan (60-70 miles):https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?siteId=25622 Enterprise is closer, but it appears you are beyond that systems footprint as well: https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?siteId=20744

Okay, I know where Taylor is. I visit relatives in Graceville and turn onto 605 from US231 near Midland City in order to bypass Dothan.

DC enter these frequencies into your radio as conventional NFM frequencies, if you hear the
digital audio and the signal strength is good then enter them into your radio as NDXN trunking.

154.3700 LCN 91 control channel, you should hear it constantly.
156.1950 LCN 92 hear it only when the channel is used.
154.4550 LCN 93 "
155.7000 LCN 94 "
155.6250 LCN 95 "

This is Enterprise's trunking system. I am close to you and I have a 40 ft tower and it is not
that strong here. So if you can't hear Enterprise you WILL NOT be able to hear Coffee and
Covington county stations. By the way I can't remember what antenna and height you are
using. Fort Rucker is fairly strong, 138.5375, setup as a P25 system, maybe set it up and
see if you can hear it.
