      Wouldn't it be much better to simply buy a BCD396T?
      That way, you could have selectable TG availability.

      You can get a used 396T for around $300 - maybe less. Joe M.

            It's not a bad unit as long as you are not in a dense
            RF environment, as it tends to overload easily.

            Of course, it's much larger then the 346/396.

            There is currently also the issue of whether there will
            be any future firmware updates, as GRE is in limbo.

                  Yes I do live the Chicago area.
                   
                  I have 2 scanners. The Bearcat 346xt and the 760xlt. I have tapped the discrimantor for the 760xlt. I want to be able to be portable with both radios and decode the digital especially for Chicago FD, which has gone digital.
                   
                  I am willing to tap the 346xt because it has more available channels.
                   
                  I would use software with my lap top so I can hear the transmissions while I am mobile.
                   
                  The price of a digital radio prohibits me from getting one.
                   
                  Thanks to all.

                  I think "Bob" is from the Chicago area as i am using the 106 for Starcom, it works very well on Starcom if your near the correct towers and that would be for "Dupage Co" Tower101...
