No. I monitor them on my Pro-96 without a problem. They are the reason I got a 96 over two years ago. I live on the Gwinnett/Forsyth county line and missed listening to all the chatter from the Forsyth SO depuities.1268 said:Just a thought, have they rebanded ??? If so that would explain things .
I just read the manual for the 796. Are you programming it as a P25, 800mhz system amd have you programmed it for control channel only? Do you have all four CC's programmed in? I know how many button pushes I used to make on my 780 to get it to trunk. Miss one, and it won't work. Check pages 45 and 46 in the manual._godawgs_ said:I second that, i programmed Forsyth into my 396t and i can listen to them no prob...That’s how i knew the 796d was not scanning them...i had both scanners next to each other and only the 396t was picking them up. That’s why i was wondering if i programmed it wrong, but if i did i can’t figure out how...i have reprogrammed the 796d three times, but to no avail. It just flashes between NFM and DAT on the screen and that’s it.
I use 866.1 for primary control channel. 866.65, and 867.6625 as the alternate control channels. I also have 867.8625 programmed in. It is an alternate CC, as well as, a data channel. These are confirmed using Pro96com to monitor the system. It is wise to put all four in just in case they do roll the channel. Not having a 796, 12.5khz step is what is needed. Unidens can be tiresome in their programming. Had a 780 at one time. I like my 96 and use Win96 for programming._godawgs_ said:Do you have the four control channels? All I have is 866.1000 and 866.6500. Also, I programmed it exactly as described in the manual, per your reference, on pages 45 and 46.
