    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:

I am looking at these scanners, and was interested in some input. Which scanner do you guys think would work well for me to monitor the Marcs system, as well as other scanning, CB, TV, AM/FM, and traditional freqs.

BCD396T
BC296D
Pro-96

Thanks for your help in advance...

The 396 & 96 both will take care of your Marcs system but the 96 will not track the I calls, someone with a 396 would have to help you here. The 96 and 2096 will cover the conventional and CB area for you just fine. I have found that some GRE scanners get overloaded in the high band area by pagers for example, my 96 and 2096 do anyway.

The 96 works great for me. As far as that overloading goes, Bucko is right on the money. Some areas in my county are just fine but some some areas are absolutely terrible.
