Hi:

I recently bought a Uniden BC345CRS. I have programmed a number frequencies associated with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LASD), which can be found here:

I get a lot of scanner traffic. However, when trying the same for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the first 40-50 frequencies found below, all I get is static, white noise, or no noise at all.

Can anyone suggest what the trouble might be or any change I can make? Thanks.

Hi J,
Your scanner is a "non-trunking, non-digital" scanner. Each of the frequencies in the link you posted is used to transmit a digital ['P25'] signal, which your scanner cannot properly receive.

Yes you need a digital scanner. I live in Cerritos and monitor the LAPD quite often. Sounds great on most of the scanners I have lited below.
