I have a PRO-96, PRO-2096 and a PRO-197 programmed the same. I used WIN96 and WIN500 respectfully for programming. PROBLEM I'm trying to solve is that the PRO-96/2096 will initialize a transmission about 1 second before the PRO-197 will pick up the same transmission. I have squelch knobs on all three radios set sensative right above threshold. Even when locked on a frequency, i get the same results (PRO-197 is still 1/2 to 1 second behind) and will miss the beginning words of the transmission.
Example transmission: PRO-96 (ECHO 41, 7X at 635 and Midway)
Example transmission: PRO-197 ( , 7X at 635 and Midway)
Hope I'm clear on my description. Any Thoughts? Thanks!

:confused: Have you tried switching antennas? Is it possible the center pin on the connector inside the radio broke (bad connection)? Hope you find it is this simple, good luck. :confused:

Is what you're monitoring digital or analog? If analog, check your squelch mode setting on the 197... if it's set to Search, it takes a second for it to determine if there's a PL, if the PL is CTCSS or DCS, and what the tone or code is. Try setting the squelch mode to None, or if you know the PL program that; either will eliminate the delay.

Problem Solved!

Thank you K9DAK Problem was the "Squelch Mode" as you suggested. Setting to "None" did not fix the problem but following your guidance, I figured out how to program the exact CTCSS and DCS PL codes. Works like a charm! Great Job and thanks again!
