Hello all,

I am a new user and have a BCD436HP. I have found that I do not receive any police communications from my local county. I can receive ones from around my county though. Am I safe to assume that once I a put my zip code in that no other programming is needed? If so, then I am thinking that perhaps the stock antenna is inadequate. I wont know until I get my ICR6 and use the telescopic one that comes with that to see what I get with it. I do not want to buy a 500mhz/800mhz antenna unless it is necessary. I even tried doing a discovery to san those frequencies and nothing is received. Would anyone have any ideas? I appreciate the help.

Have you got the appropriate Service Types enabled?

The police communicattions in your local county are not encrypted, or use something like DMR, NXDN, ProVoice, etc?
