Your not giving much information to go on here.

Are you trying to receive conventional transmissions or P25 transmissions?

Is this a mobile installation or in a fixed location like a building?

What antenna is connected to the radio and where is it located?

How far away is the radio trunking system your trying to listen to?

Was the radio programmed by the agency radio shop that owns the radio system? If so go back to them.

Was the radio programmed by you for a trunking system? If so, how did you obtain the required P25 systems key to be able to program the radio?

If you programmed the radio yourself, my guess is it was not done correctly. There are all sorts of areas in the trunking programming that need to be set exactly to match the radio system. Any one of these setting being set wrong can cause the radio not to hear transmissions on the trunking system.

Also, your tuning/alignment and firmware may need to be looked at. Please provide more info.
