I acquired a gently used but well maintained 996XT, accompanying documents indicate it is a plug and play, I'm new to the digital scanner world, so I would like to know WHY it does not pick up any local traffic operating on the pre-programmed 800 frequencies ? It was located 1 1/2 hrs from my current location originally and from what little I could obtain from the display, programmed to Allen County Ohio agencies around Lima. Do I have to delete that programming ? Were the pre-programmed frequencies deleted by the programming installed ? In my mind, those were programmed into it in addition to the pre-programmed frequencies ?
