I would ask in the Arizona forum. Members there monitor this system and can tell you which scanner models work the best. I personally prefer the 396 but it may not be the best choice to successfully monitor this system. :lol:

The overall consensus and from personal experience, with my 996T, 396T and GRE PSR-600, the GRE radios work much better on the Phoenix area P25 simulcast systems (RWC) than the Uniden's. This been documented on these forums several times.

Having said that, I don't own the newer Uniden 396XT or 996XT because it seems the newer Uniden's aren't any better on simulcast systems than the older T models.

GRE Gets my vote

Newest doesn't always = best.
If you want a smaller radio, one that is easier to program with a minimal of control over it, pick the 800.
Pick the 500 if you want a great radio that you can control and program the way YOU want.
If you know radios, you want the 500. If you just want to listen, you probably want the 800.
