    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.

Hello,
Question for anyone in marin county with a uniden 396t.

Please tell me if your scanner skips becuase of all the hills in marin county? I have several r/s scanners and they do just fine, but i was told by someone the 396t skips the first few words of the dispatch. they say they sold their scanner for this reason and i am wondering if this was a bad scanner or is it really the hills

thank you

396t Marin County

He Says That When Dispatch Says Something He Does Not Hear The First Two Words Or So. I Just Bought A New 396t And Will Check That Out To See If It Is The Hills Or His Scanner Maybe He Programed It Wrong. I Will Have Mine This Week. Do You Have Any Tips To Put In Marin County Novato Pd

make sure you have piority , wx and close call turned off. otherwise it will sound cut off.
also set marin up as different system and link them together with the same group key.
(each site differed zone, East , Sonoma and West)
Join the 396 yahoo site and I think there sould be a file on that site

that file is for the Uniden software.
Use your arc software to dowload Novato directly from here.

( I don't have the arc software) so i can't help you with that step. I see your are a premium member so you should be able to do so.
