Go into Menu..Manage Favorites..scroll to your Wisconsin...Review/Edit System...find the Site..Check Quick Key (see if you have a number assigned to it).Thanks very much for for the prompt reply!!
What my "setup" is/was can be easily explained.
I first created a brand new Favorite Called "Wisconsin'. The system for this was WISCOM and from the full data base (recently updated online) I selected the six or seven departments thaI I wanted (i.e. the various Wisconsin State Patrol regions) and also selected all tower sites in Wisconsin along with them. I did NOT avoid any of the Talk Groups used by the State Patrol nor did I avoid any of the sites. My new favorite called 'Wisconsin" was thus created. I did this fresh from the beginning again today and was sitting in my car only one mile from the Baldwin tower, which was provably on the air (I can hear the digital "hash" when I listen to the control channel frequency 139.2125 on my Icom 2730 VHF transceiver). This new Favorite called Wisconsin has its own FL Quick Key and, yes, I had clicked that number properly to bring the scan to life each time I tested things.
No luck. Listened for several hours non stop to only the Wisconsin Favorite. Not a peep. July 4th traffic crazy as hell on the nearby freeway, cops all over the place. Not one peep from scanning the Wisconsin favorite I had created. Location Control is obviously working correctly because only the towers in Baldwin and nearby Elmwood and Dresser were being scanned when my Location Control was "on". When it was "off" of course I saw the entire list of sites in alphabetical order being sampled.
What really bothers me, and maybe this is an important clue for you, "P25" never appeared in the window when I was scanning "Wisconsin'. Now and then the word "data" would flash on, but never "P25". The scanner acts like it is looking for only analog signals ???? I simply cannot understand this because in the data base the WISCOM system comes already configured as a "P25" system.
The Service Types were definitely properly selected by me (i.e. law dispatch. law tac, ems, etc). The range on my scanner was set arbitrarily at 30 miles. Neither Location Control "off" or "on" made a difference. Still not a peep heard. Not a single peep !
Meanwhile, everything working fine when I crossed back into Minnesota and brought up our state police, county sheriffs in two different counties, etc etc etc.
I have done something stupid in manipulating the Wisconsin data but I sure cannot figure out what. I will follow your advice. Am at wit's end here.
Here's a example from me...Midway Communications System (FL-1)...Review Edit Site..Site name: Chicago-Midway (Site Quick Key-0) Federal Agencies (Site Quick Key-1)
If I suddenly lost their transmissions, I would press 1.0 Enter (On) then 1.1 Enter (On).
Hope this makes sense.
