You are scanning the entire database and are located in a State/Province that starts with the letter "A". It gets a few hits locally and then takes forever to get through the rest of the database, which is, of course, "out of range". Just kidding, not enough info, lol.

One idea is a TDMA talkgroup on a P25 Phase II system.

Could it be that your receiving encrypted communications? No scanner will decode encryption.

On conventional frequencies, if an encrypted signal is transmitting, the scanner will stop and show a signal on the signal meter, but no audio.

If this is the case, you will notice an "ENC" on the screen, and you will not be able to hear anything.

I can't seem to find the post on rolling back your firmware, but it is definitely possible. Keep searching, maybe you'll have better luck finding the post.

Good luck and hope an older firmware will fix your problem.
