The displays are nice on the SDS models but I too find the need to remove one item because I need something else. Mostly when switching from analog Motorola smartnet trunking systems with P25 systems. Oh well, I guess we can't have it all!The 396XT has the ability to work with Pro96Com which I may "fire up" and see the neighbors for this new 700 MHz CAPRAD site.
I also use older radios with Pro96com. Mostly a set of 996XTs plus a 396XT and a PSR600 or even an old Pro-96. For some reason, I think the two GRE designs may not output all the data into Pro96com so I don't use them near as much.
For the older Uniden's, I'll usually have one on the Imperial site, one on the Weldon Spring site and the 396XT will be on the St Louis City 800 MHz site which is also a Moswin site today. I find the need to monitor the simulcast St Louis City site is pretty often due to the state mobiles not always getting a signal and associating with either the Weldon or Imperial sites. If you don't monitor the city site and at least Imperial or Weldon, you will miss traffic around here for Troop C and state Interop talkgroups for example. Those TGs are allowed on the cities 800 MHz system but the cities TGs are not allowed on the VHF Moswin sites. This can all be seen in Pro96com which is a valuable resource!
