• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

Hey Scott.

You've got a great radio for yourself. Once you get a handle on it you'll simply love it.

If I was on MSN or any other messenging service I'd add you in but I am not.

Feel free to PM me here if you have questions about the radio. Of course, if you post in the forum (either the Canada east or Uniden one) You're likely to get lots of help that way too.

Welcome aboard :)

Get the software!

Good choice of radio. I bought one last summer and love it. If you haven't already, get two pieces of software. One is the UASD program from Uniden's website. It's free with the 396. Also pick up AVC396 from ScannerBase at http://www.scannerbase.com/scannerbase-avc396-uniden-bcd396t-scanner-software/

Although I'm a fan of the ARC software (I have ARC780 for my 780 and had ARC250 for my 250), I just haven't seen the need to buy ARC396 given that the two programs above are free.

Once you get UASD, it gets a lot easier to "try stuff out" on the radio, particularly with trunked systems.

I'm not in your neck of the woods, but there are folks here who can point you to *.usd files for your area.
