thanks, ebay says it will be here on the 12th cant wait to get it i have a jtd1 discone antenna about 20ft in the air so hopefully ill be good to goyou will be very pleased about your decision. learn how to use it, and dont get discourged at first. there is a little learning curve but after that it a pleasure to use. pear it up with " free scan " and you cant go wrong.
Thanks a lot for the info im trying to contact the seller on ebay my scanner is marked shipped but they did not give me a tracking numberLucky, this article from our wiki (links are always blue) has links to just about everything you will need to get started; included are links to the Easier to Read manuals at the bottom of...

not sure i guess a lot depends on personal preference and where you live and what you want to listen tooI know it is cheaper, but if price were not an issue, is there anything that the 996P2 offers that would lead someone to choose it over the HP-1 and HP-2?
Also, is there any known difference in the reception provided by the 996P2 vs. HP-1, HP-2, or 536HP?
i will let you know how i like it once i get itI agree with the OP. That is his preference. The Uniden 996 series is tried and true, along with the BCT 15 and 15X (which I own). They are good performers. Not to derail this thread, but I will be purchasing a 996P2 in the near future. I like the features of that style radio and also its cost. I will give a +1 to the 996P2.
local stuff is done only took 5minlucky I would suggest doing 1 or 2 conventional systems, then 1 trunk. Fool around with the various options, learn how QKs work and what they're for...basically just put in enough to get you started. Many folks try to go whole-hog all at once and end up getting lost and frustrated.
For whatever software you use, set up your configuration, then when you have it working, immediately back it up, so if you hose something up - we've all done it, it's not that hard to do, frankly - you can easily restore it.
it was very easy not much in digital here at the moment but that changing this summer ,im playing around with the threshold to make what digital we do have mainly highway patrol sound betterGlad to hear you got your new scanner and got it up and running quickly. I love my 996P2! 👍
