I got that type of problem too. Now I only use the 396xt as a voice following setup when connected to unitrunker. Too bad Uniden didn't engineer that feature any better than what they did. You might want to consider getting a GRE. At least you'd have two radios then to utilize unitrunkers ability to run a voice follower. That, and having a spare wouldn't hurt.
