I was wondering if anyone is able to pickup any Federal traffic with the pro-96. I went to the db here and the first freq I tried didn't program as I am assuming it was out of range for this scanner. I didnt bother trying anymore as maybe this pro96 is not capable of monitoring such frequencies. I am aware that this site has a federal monitoring section but thought Id ask here since I am primarily monitoring los angeles. Thank you.

The only thing to watch out for on the PRO-96 with federal VHF frequencies is that the scanner does not support the 12.5 KHz channel steps. The frequencies will be rounded off to the nearest 5 KHz, such as 165.2375 MHz will program as 165.2350 or 165.2400. Don't let that worry you, it will still receive transmissions just fine.

The LA area federal bands are pretty active. Let us know what you hear!
