Our numbers are Legion...There are probably hundreds of 396XTs "here in MD". Would you care to be at least a little more specific?
Going to need more detail. Like, what count[y|ies] you are trying to program in and such.Does anyone use a BCD396XT Scanner here in MD? I just bought one and am having a hell of a time getting it programed.
Good to hear, but again, location is going to determine that a LOT. I.e., Charles county has a pretty strong signal. I can pick them up around the DC Beltway and even as far away as MD4 in Upper Marlboro. Calvert County, on the other hand, doesn't have such a strong signal. I tend to loose them less than a few miles away from their county line.I got my programed the other day, thanks to a friend. I was wondering if anyone in MD that has one has had any issues with them ( Weak signal, poor audio, interference, not picking up signals or transmissions, etc) also anyone having any issues with durability? Thanks
I'm thoroughly confused by your questions. Does this comment imply that the actual fire department radios were working on Route 50 in Berlin? Or you were listening to Montgomery County fire dispatching on a scanner?Sitting at the traffic light on Rt 50 by the Home Depot in Berlin we could still pick up Mont.Co. In O.C Im not sure if the radio picked it up because we switched to a far back channel in the system so we wouldn't interfer with any daily ops in the county while we were down the road. Last year in my POV I could still pick it up on my scanner in my truck on 50 @ the bridge heading into the inlet. I have a small (12 -16) inch antenna on the roof of my truck.
