You did read this in my earlier post? You will not be able to decode the system to hear it. It requires a digital scanner. Period. You will be able to input the 138-144mhz range in AM with the Win97 software. The choppers use a mixture of 40-47mhz in FM, any 118-137mhz is in AM, 225-380mhz in AM. You need to go to Monitoring Times and check out the milcom blog there. I don't understand why they keep moving from the South Carolina forum to here. But, keep asking your questions. It is a lot to learn for someone just getting into milcom listening. Somedays, it is non-stop. Others you can scan for hours and hear absolutely nothing. It is like any other hobby, take it slow, and have fun. I've been listening to milcoms since around 1989. It literally takes years of moniitoring to know where to go and what to program into the radio.
Take it slow and have fun!

The 296 will work, it will not trunk. And no I didn't read your sig.
But if you program all the 380 MHz frequencies in, you'll be able to listen, but not follow transmissions.

But all the Air frequencies you should be hearing something on them, that and the use of the search key will yield lots of results.

Sorry, your 296 will trunk the 409mhz system at Fort Jackson. Had to look up that it did 9600baud. Do you have software for the 296? The only thing that the 296 won't do is be upgraded for the rebanding. You need not worry about that. You will be able to follow the Palmetto 800 in SC too.

The Unidens Portable-396, Mobile-996
and portable-PSR-500 and mobile 600 can

I do know the non-trunking versions of GRE scanner work great or UHF air band.
I have the Pro-2055 and the Pro-164

Read the threads in the scanner forums, all posters have their favorites.
Me I would probably buy a PSR-500 for my next scanner.
My Uniden does trunk track Ft Knox fine.
