      I haven't yet given my 396XT a go on digital, that's waiting for the
      CFA to migrate to P25. The only digital experience I have is with
      D-STAR (on ham gear), where audio levels have been very
      consistent. I prefer digital audio. It's not as "natural" sounding,
      but I find it generally easier to copy. However, I do have concerns
      about black spots, which analogue at least gives a warning of (by
      means of a noisy signal).
