I am wanting to listen to the Indiana State Police and Mishawaka, IN, radio traffic. They have gone digital, I have been looking on Ebay for some digital scanners and it looks like I could get a decent deal on a Pro 96. Been reading up on new digital systems and trunk tracking looks like this scanner should work. Anyone have any experience with this scanner?
These are the two systems the Mish Police and ISP use.
Motorola Type II SmartZone Omnilink
Project 25 Standard
Re: Pro 96
I have the Pro 96 as well as the Pro 97. I had to get the 96 because my city went digital and I got a decent deal on ebay on the unit. If I had to do it again, I probably would have gotten a different scanner. Maybe I'm a little picky, but I just don't feel it's all that great. Reception seems ok, but my friends $50 Nascar scanner while using the same antenna has much better reception. I noticed the same thing when I used my Pro97. I hope to get a Uniden scanner pretty soon to test it out.
The Pro96 is a pretty durible scanner though. I've beat on that and the Pro97 hard and they both still work.
I'm pretty surprsed at how expensive the digital scanners still are.
Re: Pro 96
Thanks for the good info.
