I no longer get ANYTHING on IHP 155.640 or state of Iowa on my BCT 8. Frequency change, or scanner problem?

It's Hard to say they may be going P25 digital in your area, They seem to be intergrating it here and their.

If you have your CTCSS on, you won't hear the digital signal. If your hearing a digital signal, you will know. You won't be able to stand it and will want to lock the channel out.

That's why I'm confused. I get no signal whatsoever. With no CTCSS enabled. Manually entered 154.220 County Fire works, but 155.640 IHP has nothing.

I Would suggest scanning the 154-156 range for a bit and see what you come up with see
If you recongnieze the dispatcher or the dispatch center city name in the traffic call.

About all i can suggest.

I heard traffic on 155.640 last night. From time to time you may not hear anything due to staffing. Last weekend no one was off, so for the rest of week there was less troopers.

May have figured it out. Been running a 6" rubber duckie in the past and everything was good. Then, IHP disappeared. Went to the 9" duckie and IHP came in weak. I tend to believe that the local repeater went down. Now researching better antennas.
