It's an EDACS narrowband system. Do you have it programed as standard EDACS or EDACS narrowband in the scanner? That'll make a difference. Otherwise, try scanning the frequencies conventionally and see if you can hear anything, especially a control channel.

A Pro-96 will not decode FPL's half-rate EDACS control channel. GRE never put narrow EDACS (a slower control channel scheme) into the Pro-96 operating firmware, and probably will not considering the age of the product. You would have to program in the discrete voice channels at the site you're interested in (lock out the control channel) and scan those in conventional. Newer scanners may decode narrow EDACS.

Also remember that the control channel changes almost every day. I listen conventional with my 96 and do not miss much.

do they use their vhf or other conventional frequencies for anything interesting?
