I have had scanners since the early eighties. Just last week bought a new BCD996XT and butel software , joined radio reference etc. Downloaded all local frequencies, conventional and trunked of interest. For the life of me and countless hours searching online, viewing you tube, reading forums etc., I still can not figure out how EXACTLY what I need to do to hear any of the trunked frequencies of local systems. I really would like to figure this out. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have tried now for about a week and continue to do so. So far spent $400 and change for the scanner, a few dollars more for software, a few dollars more for Radio Reference etc. sheesh it is getting to be expensive just to have fun listening to local comms. Thanks everyone any help is appreciated, maybe someone out there can provide any useful info I may have missed.
