    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:

Officially, it's a Motorola VHF Type II OTB (Other Band Trunking) Smartnet system.

Since Type I was never available on VHF or UHF, you're only choice is Type II.

Unfortunately, since I'm not familiar with Freescan, I can't tell you what to use.

On my 996T, if I'm programming it by hand, I select a new MOT TYPE2/P25 system and under Site, I select VHF.

I'm not in front of my 996XT but I'm sure it's similar.

Since it's only a few frequencies and two bandplans, it's probably just as easy to enter it in by hand and then read it back with Freescan once it's working.
