Most of NC is on the Viper system. I can't emphasize enough that you need to program this scanner using a PC. I too have a 996T and would not even consider trying to program the Viper system on my scanner by hand.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it's better than pulling your hair out and spinning your wheels needlessly.

Most of Greensboro and Guilford County traffic is on their system (not VIPER), but to monitor NCSHP you will need to program the Greensboro, or Riverdale, or both VIPER site(s). I'm probably not the "expert" that some guys are, but I work in the Greensboro area, and monitor during my commute and occasionally during the day. If you don't get any other replies, I'll be glad to help as much as I can. Caveat: I do not own a '996.

Are you in the Guilford County area as well? Which part of the county will your friend be monitoring from (Summerfield, High Point, McLeansville, etc.)? Which agencies are he interested in monitoring? If you feel more comfortable, you are welcome to e-mail me with your reply. My address is kc4wsd (at) gmail (dot) com.

Not sure what happened to my post just now . . . Anyway, I was asking which part of Guilford County your friend lives (Summerfield, High Point, McLeansville, Greensboro, etc.), and which agencies he likes to monitor. If you'd feel more comfortable using e-mail, my address is kc4wsd (at) gmail (dot) com.

The area of the county where your friend lives may play a factor in the agencies (and talkgroups) he will be interested in monitoring. If he lives in McLeansville, for example, he probably won't be all that interested in monitoring High Point PD. I'll wait for your e-mail. Again, there are probably guys on here who are better suited to respond, and I welcome any assistance from the peanut gallery.
