Hey guys,


I sold my 780 so I went out today to look at the new radios figuring I would buy two-one for me and one for Dad. Anyway, I prefer the quality of the Philipino radio over the PRC variety but I will survive I guess. My question is faceplates. I kinda want to go with the 996 even though I have little digital in Boston and only Auburn Maine near Dad is running digital. I absolutely hate that silver faceplate on the 996 so I am wondering if they just pop on around the controls and can be changed to black since there are no model numbers or anything and it looks like they snap on. If this is possible, I will order the plates and buy that radio, otherwise its a pair of 15's. The one's that the dealer had did not have the red buttons which I like. Am I missing something or are these older or newer than the radios on the website?

You have to dissassemble the entire scanner to free the faceplate. I'm not sure about the red buttons - they are orange across all models.
