I have an SDS100 and still getting used to it. I have Topaz RWC as a favorite and one of the channels is B3 VHF 154.880 Patch, TGID 3098. I can not getting any traffic on this TGID but I can listed to traffic on the same TGID on Broadcastify. Not sure why. It carries a lot of the major fire incidents so I'd like to listen in. Any ideas? THis may be better in the Arizona channel but I wasn't sure.

Thank you

That particular talkgroup might not be carried on the site(s) you're monitoring. A subscriber's radio would have to affiliate with the particular site you're monitoring at that moment and be set on that channel for you to hear it on your scanner. The Broadcastify feed may be monitoring a different site from the ones you can receive that often carries that talkgroup because radios that affiliate to that site are set to monitor it.
