The scanner is object oriented, not trunked. You can mix P25 et al with conventional frequencies. But you do have to make your choice of scanlists. For example, I chose to make a scanlist for each county in my area... plus one for the state police. Other members opt to make each scanlist a service... police, fire, EMS. Since you are a premium member I assume you have the programming cable and you can experiment with the 30-day trials of Win500, ARC, PSR. If you haven't read through the other forums or the Wiki, please have a look. Links, manuals, Q&A all address your questions. HTH.

Your PRO197 will receive trunked systems in the 150 Mhz frequency range.
The RR Database notes that DNR and FC have talkgroups on the 800 Mhz statewide Palmetto trunked system. The database also lists conventional analog frequencies for DNR and FC, in analog mode. Is it possible that the digital transmissions you are hearing are P25 on a single frequency, not trunked?
