• 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:

Is there any difference between these two scanners other than one is a hand held and the other one is a base scanner. Which one would you buy?

If you'll be doing a lot of mobile monitoring especially of fleetnet the multi site tracking could be of benefit on the 996.

For great portability the 396 is the way to go. Really depends how you're thinking of using it as to which is truly better. The 996 being the latest release of technology.
