Jeff,
The card will only do 3600 baud. Newer systems are 9600 so you might want to check your area to see if its worth it. May be best to save the money for a new scanner.

It is more of a 3600 vs 9600 baud issue. I think the card will actually support the 9600 baud issue, but the basic scanner will not and it also cannot support a rebanded system with updated firmware like the BC296D.

Save your money and buy a used BCD396XT or a new BC436HP.

Ok thanks again for the info, The San Diego county system still runs a 3600 baud, And the city system is Analog and as of right now the rebanding here and going 9600 is not going to happen anytime due money and if they do go to a new system it won't be til after 2017 from what I'm hearing, On a side note I'm running 2 996t, 1 250D and old pro 2050 & 93 and soon a 346 xt
