I programmed my 996P2 a couple of weeks ago when I got it using whatever was in my 996XT file, meaning I didn't even update it to what was current in the RR DB ... and I am hearing Site 8 just fine. From Norman. On the telescopic whip. Can hold on the CC (860.9375 as of now). In fact, OHP AR-1 and AM-1 are active on Site 8 as I am typing.Search 851-861 in 12.5 kHz steps and see if you can find a new control channel. It could have changed to one that isn't in the database. If you don't see one then maybe nothing was changed on the system and the problem is on your end.
