I sure hope I have the correct forum: Just had my SD Card updated , there are 5 counties entered, for some reason my Uniden 436 scans usually rite over P-25 sites, when it does lock on there is no audio, I am receiving signal very well, my range is within limit , running LMR 400 coax , with a NMO high frequency antenna, any suggestions out there or recommendations .

Can you post a link to the trunk systems you are looking to monitor from the RRDB?
This issue you are having might be due to Simulcast.

You can post links by visiting the RRDB at www.radioreference.com/apps/db
Then go to your state and county
Then click on the trunk system you are having issues with.

In your browser bar, select the URL and then paste it as a reply to this thread.


Example: here is at the Alachua P25 system:


It is a simulcast 800Mhz System. This could be why you can't hear it, but are you in Alachua County when you have the problem or are you 50 - 100 miles away?
