I'm gonna have enough trouble trying to get into the menu for this...but what seems to be the best settings on the 396 for Howard county, MAA and Baltimore city?

I've got firmware 1.13.17, by the way...

Mike, For my particular 396 (from the first-ever production series) with the firmware version just prior to what you have, I find that BALT CITY 800 actually comes in best with the default P25 setting of "AUTO" {so it should start at 8} and no further changes.... and I find that the system sounds best with the digital AGC disabled. Same for Harford County. Have yet to monitor Howard. This also works well for me with the UES Consortium + the 3 DE 800 zones.

I'm rather impressed by the sound quality, but do stay tuned for the Uniden firmware updates (due any day now) which should hopefully further fine tune this.

It may tend to vary with the quality of the signal you get, but I'm finding somewhat better decoding with a setting of 9, with the digital AGC on. But your suggestions got me off the ground, thanx
