Sounds like it is not in trunking mode. Always helps to post what radio and TRS you are monitoring..

I've moved your question to its own thread. Please start a new thread if your question doesn't fit any existing threads.

Thanks.

What system are you talking about?
How many talkgroups do you have programmed in?
Is it always the same talkgroup or random talkgroups?

Is this the system you are talking about?

Maybe your only hearing one side of the conversation because the other transmissions are encrypted. I have a local agency who's dispatcher is always in the clear and all other units are encrypted. The BCD996XT will automatically mute encrypted transmissions and continue scanning.

So you will hear only one side of the conversation (the dispatcher only)
