• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

After being loyal to RS for many years, the new 996 is just too incredible to pass up! I have been reading the threads here and looking at the capabilities and am impressed beyond words! I have a DIN mounted 2055 in my truck now, and as soon as I am able to it will be replaced with the 996. I just replaced my central air system in my home and paid for my daughters wedding on Saturday so I am tapped out at the moment! Does anyone (dealers) carry Uniden that finances by chance?

Thats what I'm thinking too. I was just hoping for a good rate if I do get it now on credit. I prefer to save up, but really want this radio! I got the nickname with the old "pull my finger" gag!

Your going to love the 996. I wish this one had been around when I first started to listen to trunked radio systems, back when the only option was to plug in all the frequencies and try to catch the action conventionally.
