Nothing to compare to Win96. ScanCat Lite will partially program a Pro-96 and many other scanners. However, ScanCat will never be able to program any trunking tables to the scanner nor will it be able to program any new tables when rebanding comes around. Win96 will.
sflyersguy...Is it a Radio Shack scanner you are trying to program? If the answer is yes, have you tried to program the scanner using WinXX software?
If the answer is no to the 2nd question, then you can't go wrong using WinXX software.
