      Jerry, Hi my name is Mike and I am south of you in Fenton Michigan. I work
      in the Saginaw area on Tue and Thursday's. I have both the 396XT and the new
      GRE PSR-800. I think being that Saginaw is using simulcast you may get
      better reception with the PSR-800 depending on your location. I have taken
      the 800 with me to work to listen and it does A pretty good job. I will have
      to see if I get time and take both the 396XT and PSR-800 and compare them on
      the system. If you want to check them out we could meet up for lunch
      sometime.

      Mike
