      What you want requires two seperate receivers: one to continuously monitor for a SAME alert and one to scan.

      Or, you'd have to be willing to accept the audio being interrupted about every .5 seconds for about .25 seconds to check for a SAME alert.

      Thanks again Joe.

      You were correct..  I had it in Priority, not SAME scan..

      I have to say, though, I'm a bit dissapointed.  Putting it into SAME scan, A) only allows one county at a time, and B) even more importantly, it ONLY scans the Weather freqs.  That makes the 396XT, and 996T, $500 weather radios!  For that amout of money, I would've thought it could continue to scan my areas of interest WHILE keeping an 'ear' out for the SAME codes... 

      I've never used this feature on the 996 or I would've already known all of this so again, thanks for pointing me in the right direction...
