• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Is there any word of an upgraded USAD for the 396 going to be issued. I would love to be able to set default active systems rather than have them all on after each update. The biggest improvement I would like to see in the radio itself would be the ability to set apco 25 as the modulation. I am really getting tired of hearing other users or worse yet interference from machines. It would be nice to set it to only look for digital (and while I am having some wishful thinking NAC settings would be really nice on the digital channels). I know this has all been said before but with Uniden listening maybe it will effect some change.

Some features, like the digital only mode and multi site, are present in the 996. While I'd agree, it would be nice to see some of these in the 396, I wonder if implementation is beyond the capability of the 396's processor, or the code that can be changed with a firmware flash.

At this point I'd be surprised to see any major changes to the capabilities of the 396. I wouldn't expect any major upgrades to the UASD software either. ARC396 is definitely worth the cost and is much easier to use than UASD.

At this point UPman and the Uniden team are probably starting to think about the 496 or whatever the follow on scanner will be.

If, when you upload to the scanner, all of them are active, then they must have been active when you set them up or when you downloaded them from the scanner. I normally have one SQK active when I start doing things and when I reload the scanner, that is the only System active. Take a look under the Quick Keys tab on the configuration file edit.
