    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I told a friend that I'd help him out and program his 396xt for him after the rebanding. Now I find out that I will need some info about the firmware update or updates.

Here I my questions:

1. How do I find out which version of the firmware is installed?
2. If there are more than one update from the version that he has in his scanner, are these updates incremental or will they be combined?

Once I get this info then I guess the real "FUN" part of the job begins. I plan on using Freescan for the programming of the systems that he wants. Any suggestions on the template for the programming?

TIA

Dave

Easier to Read BCD396XT Digital Scanner Manual
2. If there are more than one update from the version that he has in his scanner, are these updates incremental or will they be combined?
Yes, combined
Any suggestions on the template for the programming?
Since you are a premium member, you could just download what he needs, and the template will be established from the download.
Otherwise, use what has worked for you.
