I'm trying to get Horry County & Myrtle Beach Police but all frequencies listed via Radio Reference are silent! I know they are going to P25 sometime this year and I think the ws1098 is P25 capable. Yet every Horry county frequency listed is silent. (I live here so I know better!) I've run all the updates.

I also have an old Uniden handheld that still picks up Horry County fire dispatch. (154.800mhz) That frequency is programmed into the ws1098 and is priority yet it mostly ignores any broadcast while the hand held plays it completely? I have only PD & FD frequencies programmed at this time, Palmetto 800, trunked & conventional (54 freqs).

Is my scanner not capable? Should I send it back? It's too expensive to keep if it won't do the job.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

k3sls beat me to it!

Horry County has already made the switch to P25.

You should have this system programmed to receive all fire agencies & all law enforcement agencies except SCHP: https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=9279

The only agency using Palmetto 800 in Horry County is SCHP. The Palmetto 800 system will also be moving to P25 in the coming months.

As for the scanner, it should be perfectly capable of receiving the system. I'm not familiar with the Whistler scanners so someone else might be able to help make sure you have it setup correctly.

Thank you for the responses!

Then how come importing via EZ Scan or the memory card (updated) doesn't work? I hear ZERO?

Thanks!

Yes. Browsing systems only show Palmetto 800 via EZ Scan and SD card database....

I've been reading that link. When I update library it says I have the latest. When I select "Copy to Scanner..." it says the files are the same.

EZ Scan connects directly to Radio Reference yet is shows no "P25" systems.

Looking at the link above for Horry County I downloaded the data as CSV and copied to a text file and even tried importing from clipbord... the following...

RFSS,Site Dec,Site Hex,Description,County Name,Lat,Lon,Range,Frequencies
1,001,1,Simulcast,Horry,33.94336,-79.013672,26,854.412500,856.212500,858.962500,859.212500,859.437500,859.712500

Says... "No columns found..."

Argh!!
