I have the 396,& 996xts. I am in PFDS west near St.Charles and i pick up P.E.T. quite well. Both of these radios are digital,trunking.. do you have the option of selecting AM mode when you enter the freqs? Maybe those radios are defaulting to FM settings?,,just a thought..
From here i can pick up Twr..Dep/Arv.. Clearence. And at times Ground.. i also pick up the Edacs system for the surete and crash crews. And also the other trunked system for the airlines and PTVs,..
I used to have a 780, a few yrs ago for a short time when i was in Lachine just south of the airport and it did work well back then.
