    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.

I am by no means a radio expert. In fact, after reading the posts here in Radio Reference, I realize how much I DO NOT know.

However, I did some reading and then tried to perform the AGC Tweak Procedure as outlined on the WIKI site for the BCD 996T

Instead of getting the display "P25 RES TIME" and "P25 REF GAIN", I only can get "ANA RES TIME" and "ANA REF GAIN"

Am I having problems with the unit.

Thanks for any help.

I have followed the procedure and I get on the first line:
ERR:--- 5 MAN (This setting cannot be adjusted as listed in the tweak)
P:25 RES TIME: +0

Think somethng is wrong with the radio?

i think it would be much appreciated if someone could post the complete how-to, in simple english, of how to do the firmware upgrade, including turning the AGC on and tweaking the audio in the menu. we are at different levels of competence here, and, unfortunately, i'm low on the food change.

i suspect uniden may come up with another upgrade at some point. but it would be nice to get a compilation of what we know, at this point, feb 23, 07.

thanks, regards, 73s

p.s. if i knew how to do this, i would post it. did the firmware upgrade, some audio issues, but reluctant to go above my head. but, i can follow instructions.

Here a silly question. Once you made the adjustments, will the 996 keep these settings or do you have to do it this way each time you turn it on. I made the changes so I guess I can turn it off and back on normal and it will be saved?
Thanks
