On the 996P2 and the mobile 996 family of scanners how do I program a conventional frequency such that it hears ANY NAC that it receives?

Is it 293 or F7E or just leave it blank?

Thanks.

Just leave it set to SEARCH or blank (I don't have one out right now to confirm the terminology used...).

If I recall scanners use search to basically leave it open for digital csq while a motorola is F7E recieve. 293 is just a default NAC used by default. Many utilize it but it does not guarantee any interop or agency will not change it.

By hand, when you program the freqy in the menu scroll to "digital only" for the freqy in hand then press "E" gives you a selection for PL or NAC....Search or program in....

In NAC search it will stop on all transmissions, and display the NAC being used.

I'm programming the many, many, many, many GSP frequencies using FreeScan, naturally. I just left all the NAC entries blank in the hopes that it will not restrict it.

I notice they re-use a few frequencies between Posts so this allows me to simplify the programming. I'll hear whatever is near which is what I want.

It would be awfully nice if this were documented in FreeScan or Uniden instructions.
