I seem to have imported and uploaded all the frequencies and talk groups for Madison County but not hearing anything. I am getting the data frequency fine. Any thoughts on this?

Madison County is a P25 digital system. Do you know for a fact that your 796 has the digital card installed? Not all 796's came with the digital card included. If you bought it used, the original owner might not have included it. Just a thought.

Yes, DE means full encryption if it has a lower case e it’s partial encryption. I do a lot of scanning on the Madison county system. Police for the most part is encrypted Fire, EMS and the schools are on the system and are in the clear. Make sure the north system is the one that is programmed in as the north is where all the traffic is transmitted to.

Traffic on the system is usually pretty active if you have any more questions about the system let me know. I hope it all works well
