SDS 100 and Nags Head

I was in Nags Head, NC last week and tried to listen to their police and fire channels. Radio Reference and Sentinel shows them in VIPER and a local system. I tried both of them and neither would work. Neither data base shows any encryption. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Did you check all of the service types you are interested in?  You can either do that in Sentinel or on the unit itself.

The local system you entered was Dare County Public Safety Project 25 Phase I, yes? 

Earlier this year, I was visiting Pawleys Island, SC in Georgetown County.  Using my 436HP with GPS, I would get the Palmetto 800 P-25 Phase I system with plenty of SCHP traffic and other traffic but no Georgetown County Talkgroup user traffic. 

I entered a Pawleys Island zip code, again plenty of SCHP traffic, but no luck for Georgetown County TG's

I had programed my 396XT with Georgetown County Conventional freqs but had not programed the Palmetto 800 System since the 436HP would do that via GPS/Zip Code. 

I manually programed the Palmetto 800 System with SCHP and Georgetown County TG's in my 396XL and began getting traffic on the Georgetown Local TG's.  I then did the same, manually programmed my 436HP and began to receive Georgetown County TG's.

Programing manually worked fine.  Using the GPS and/or Zip Code function, I wasn't receiving Georgetown County TG's.

Manually programing both systems might have been the solution, it worked for me in Pawleys Island, SC.
