I already have a 996xt and a 396t and was thinking about buying a home patrol. I have had problems programing my scanners now. I use freescan software. I am not understanding the talk groups and the way to set up all the systems it seems like i am adding to many systems. and repeating this for every talk group. but anyways....... I was wondering if the home patrol was a waste of time and money i was thinking about going with the extreme set up.
