• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Your scanner will not work for the Michigan system, you'll need a digital scanner.

does that mean that i cannot get any mot 2 type trunking system in my scanner?
No it just means that if you want to receive a digital system you need a digital scanner. The PRO97 will receive alalog mot 2 systems, but the MPSCS system is all digital, with a 9600 baud control channel. Mot 2 analog or mixed mode systems are 3600 baud control channel.
Radio Shack digital scanners are the PRO96 and PRO2096.

The BC796D should have the card in it. The BC796D is what I'm using.

Call Gary Watts @ 888-772-0911 (Public Safety Communications, in Warren, MI). I think he has brand new Uniden BC796D's in stock. All 796's come with the APCO-25 Digital card as standard.
