The NAC should be the same for all voice channel frequencies at a given site.
Great! Thanks for that info. I knew there must be a way otherwise why even have the NAC search setting if it does not display the results on the screen.
Does the 996 or 396 need to be in a certain "display mode" in order to see the NAC. Like Mode 1 or 2? Mode 3 just shows the system activity on the 3rd line while mode 1 or 2 shows more useful info like the actual frequency the radio tuned to or the talkgroup. I always forget which display mode shows what info other than mode 3 which I never use.
I would think mode 1 as that shows other info like LNK, ENC, P25 etc. along with the tuned frequency. At least when you are scanning a P25 trunked system.

Edit: Wow, it worked! The display mode does not seem to matter.
As long as you are tuned to a voice frequency in conventional mode with the freq set as digital only and then select NAC Search like your instructions say.
I thought my Icom R2500 displayed the NAC also but I can only see the TG and Radio ID on its display.
Oh well, now I know how to get the NAC when I only have a Uniden running.
