It's just as quiet on the east coast too! Same reason. Things will improve. Just use the time to get to know every function on your scanner. It might not seem to make much sense without a transmission to intercept & decode but you'll be better equipped to catch those Prisoner Transfer vehicles, Council Services, store security, shopwatch CCTV !
