    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

After having a 396 for two weeks there are some concerns that I have come across so far.The radio works like a charm in the systems that I am listening to in the central Indiana area.Indianapolis Meca and Hamilton County(directly north of Indpls) They are on an EDACS system. My issue and concern is with the statewide system.It is a multi site system with at least 70 locations spread all over the state.I have search and tried to find options and ideas to attempt to program the site locations closest to my residence. But yet the 996 has the multi site system for the statewide system all ready preprogrammed in it. Plus there are concerns connected to the senevity of the radio. I have read that there is a major difference compared to the 996 which is better from what I have read.



Thanks

These two concerns there really isn't anything you can do about them. I don't own a 996t but I really don't see that much of a difference in sensitivity compared to my Pro-96. I do think the Pro-96 is more sensitive in UHF low including 800mhz. When I say more sensitive I mean slightly. With the multi-site trunking, a firmware update may be able to include this.

I really hope so love the radio and the features.. But the of multi-site trunking maybe a deal killer for me..
