Has anyone upgraded their 996 or 396 to see if any improvements have been made in the 9600baud simulcast world?

I am have upgraded a 996, but haven't had much of a chance to make any kind of comparison.

That's good to hear considering I always have a problem monitoring York County with my 396 even when I'm in downtown Rock Hill.

I've updated my 996 to firmware 2.00.06. Can't give you a comparison, but York Co sounds mostly good from south Charlotte, stock antenna. I do notice a difference in audio level among various talk groups,and occasional distorted(encrypted?) audio but I have so far made no adjustments for digital monitoring.

I updated mine and usually listen to CHS and I noticed a big difference. With the analog agc gain set to -5 and digital agc gain set to +5 the sound quality is great.
