Nothing unusual there
Remember that when there are no comms being received the scanner is monitoring/listening to the control channel...it receives the UID info off that same control channel but there will be times when that info is not available...from the original 396XT firmware update page
(which also applies to the 996XT):
--In some cases where you catch a transmission already in progress you will not see the Unit ID.
--In some cases where a second party responds to a transmission before the channel is released, you will not see the second party's Unit ID and will continue to see the first party's Unit ID.
Even my city issued $4000 Moto XTS 5000 does not receive all RIDs for all transmissions.
But when I put my Moto and my 396XT/996XT head to head they both match up so the Unidens are at least as good as my "official" city radio.
Hope this helps!

On my Butel software I put the i1302 in the Talkgroup column and Engine 2 in the Alpha Tag Column?
But that open up another question:
I have limited myself (for programming purposes) to the FIRE System, which uses multiple Sites.
Under the FIRE System I have a number of Groups ... one of which is the UID Group)
When I'm scanning I get the new UID (ENGINE 1) on some of the TX while on others I get nothing.
Would that be because it's picking up the TX late ... or is there something else I should be looking at?
