Do you have power connected to both the scanner and the RH-96?

Are the cables connected securely?

Is the scanner turned on? (The RH-96 can not power on or off the radio..)

There is a firmware update for the 396T to make it work properly with the RH-96. If you haven't already done so, go to the Uniden site, register the scanning then download and install the update. I had problems with the cable that came with the head and Uniden sent a replacement out. No problems since then, but I'd still make sure that the update is installed before I did anything else.

Make sure you have the highest baud rate selected in PC CONTROL on the scanner. The thought here is that the scanner is set to "off".
