• 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:

At this moment NOPD is running a Provoive system that is patched into the LATIE system. This is the new 700 system. NOPD is in the process of transfering to the LATIE system.

What is the best scanner to use for the LATIE SYSTEM Or should I wait for more scanners to come out that cover that feature?

I think right now they are the BCD396T (handheld scanner) and the BCD996T (base/mobile).

There may be another out there but I think those are all.

They support trunking Project 25 systems, which LATIE is one.

At present date, they are the ONLY 700 MHz APCO 25 TRS capable scanners.

I am tempted to buy a BCD396T. I have a few questions. Are they easy to program? Can you do it from the computer. Also can you connect them to a outside antenna for base use? Thanks for your input.

Yes, Yes, & Yes.
You will have to adapt your thinking to a new type of programming though.
Uniden provides free software for using the computer to program it.
An outside antenna might get more than you really want, but you can do it.

One more option

While they will not trunk the 700 freqs, the Radio Shack Pro 96 and 2096 will monitor the 700 freqs in conventional mode if you use the Win96 software by Don Starr and select the extended frequency option. I am doing this and am having good luck as there is not much traffic on the system right now with the exception of the New Orleans towers. I have pulled out my credit card to order a 996 several times but have not. I subscribe to the BCD996T group at Yahoo and have noted that these units are extremely difficult ( that's actually a nice word to describe it) to program and operate. I am not a novice, having fooled with scanners and radios for 30 years. While the trunking feature will surely come in handy for LATIE later, the 399.00 current sale price for the Radio Shack units along with the ease of use(especially with Win96) make them a good alternative. Just my nickel's worth. Good luck.
