Be sure you have the latest DSP version for the 96.

Also, a Radio Shack RS800mhz Rubber Duckie antenna helped on the MPSCS sites.

But note: the reception on the Detroit and Macomb site it fairly poor to begin with, so it can be difficult, even with all of the lastest equipment (Thats what boat im in).

i have all the above it seems in the last two weeks to a month this has been a issue but only on mpscs and the warren trs i do have the dsp update the rs 800 rubber duck but it is a first generation 96 and my out door roof antenna does not seem to help or hurt the reception

I'm not 100% sure on this but I believe the leaves blooming on the trees may cause some reception issues on the 800mhz scanners.
