What about Phase II? I understand that if you don't need Phase II then a scanner that can "do that for you" won't help you, but it can definitely "do" more than the 996XT can.

Cool

perhaps i should voice my concern a little bit clearer. my concern was that i thought one could create/edit/add/delete a favorites frequency thru front end programming. i don't want to have to depend on a computer to programm my scanner. i don't have the resources to be slaved to a computer . or am i missing something ?.

I voted no because thee seems to many problems and issues with these 2 models I'll stick with the 996 and 396 xts. Major epic fail on the new models and I'm not alone on this there are several of us in Connecticut that feel the same way

Wink

everyone seems well divided on the new radios. at this point i have to take a timed wait and see approach. i'm not anxious to shell out $500.00 for a "iffy" radio. true i could return it to scannermaster.....but......

Do you have a hard time making up your mind ?. well yes and no.
