Sounds like you are looking more for a single scanner control program to just remotely control your 996. Take a look at ProScan. I think that might just do the trick for you. I use and love the program, and it has a 30 day free trial just to let you make sure before you put your 50 bucks down on it.Actually, I'm more interested in how to set up the Uniden radio than getting Trunker to work (I've done that). I used to control a second RS 2006 as the voice radio (with an Opto board), but can't find any info on controlling the Uniden in their "All in one" users manual (I wonder who's brilliant idea THAT was, it adds further confusion to an already confusing concept!) or the simplified manual.
