• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

Can anyone tell me, who has one of these radios, if the radio tracks the digital setting the same way as the pro96 does. To clarify what I am asking, the pro 96 automatically tunes in the digital signal without human intervention where the older digital unidens you had to go into some menu setting and adjust some type of digital filter. Is that a thing of the past? Is it simply program and go like the Pro96.

I would like to hear some feedback on these radios as I am going out to buy one of them or the pro2096 tomorrow.

Thanks,

Dave

The AUTO "8" setting gives acceptable performance on most digital systems. Unlike previous and other models, you can further optimize the decode threshold to provide slightly better decoding. Whether you will need or want to make any change from the default will depend entirely on the system you are monitoring.
