433Re: [BCD396XT] LTR Capabilities
- Mar 5, 2009Good question Terry!
It would be cool if you only entered the frequencies and the 396XT could decode their proper LCN position and store that. As an aside, in my GRE500 and RS106, only the LTR TGs that have traffic will reveal their LCN number...no traffic, just another frequency without a home.
If the 396XT CAN do this, it would mark a plus in the pro's column for me.....How about digital decode for LTR UPMan?....If not this model, future offerings?..... We need some hope. More and more LTR systems in Illinois are going digi.

Never had a problem listening to LTR or EDACS on the 396T
