Ronaldski thanks for that info. Are you 100% confident that with the 996XT we only need the control channel and alternates programmed? I am just getting into this hobby again and I'm very rusty. I work as an LEO sometimes using the MPSCS and I'm curious if there is an easier way to pull off the tower site info from my APX7000? Like can I just write down the towers its hitting and make the scanner use that site?Just put in the new frequencies, mainly all you need is the control channel and alternate frequencies only. You can just do an Edit frequency and overwrite the current 868 MHz frequencies you have now.
