Is it possible you have antenuation on either by system, channel or Global in the radio?
Have you tried a different antenna with the radio?

Is there more then 1 ID programmed? Are all the "lists" on?

Can you hear the control channel noise on the 796?

Sounds like something was accidentally deleted or changed.

Greenfield appears to be a Motorola type II system Greenfield, City of Trunking System, Greenfield, Wisconsin - Scanner Frequencies , however I am seeing rumblings of OpenSky (un-monitorable by any scanner) in Milwaulkee.

Somewhere in this room. Right now, you're very col
Sounds to me like you have an inactive ID list. If they are not already visible on the display, press the "." key to see what lists are active while scanning just that bank.

You know what? I just reread your post again - you said you aren't getting anything in search either, so the above isn't applicable.

I'd ask in the Wisconsin forum. Maybe something system-specific is going on.
