Thanks for the file. Uploaded to my 396xt with Freescan and get an error; "No APCO Band Plan." I let it scan all night and received nothing. Anyone have any suggestions?

I wonder if there has been a noticeable drop in activity here due to analog scanning being phased out. I'm not about to shell out big bucks for a P25 capable scanner, especially since to me the audio is lacking.

In my care though is a 396T that belongs to a friend. The display doesn't work and I have been thinking about getting it fixed for him. Uniden has a $50 blanket repair charge that doesn't seem to bad.

I had a seven year old 396 repaired by Uniden last year. The scanner I received back was essentially a brand new radio. Very pleased with what I got for $50.

A 396T will work very well on this system IF you are in the right location and/or have it on a good antenna. Since the switch to the P25 system I've given up on mobile or portable monitoring. Both my 396 and HP- 1 are tethered to yagi's. Everyone's experience varies, depending on where in Charlotte you are located.

Hey Guys new to the board here in the Charlotte Area. I just recently bought a uniden sportcat 180 for the races and I was also wanting to listen to CMPD as well. Will this radio work for that or will I have to get a scanner for the home. I am very new to the field of working a scanner so any info would help. Thanks Guys

If it isn't a digital scanner it will not pick up Charlotte PD.
