  • It's been a while, but from what I recall I think my testing showed about 10-12 hours battery life on a 436 compared with 7-8 hours on a 325 with conditions being as equal as possible, so it is close to 1/3 less. (which makes sense) Joe M. On 6/11/2017 9:13 AM, Richard Carlson n9jig@^$1 [BCD396XT] wrote: > > > I have found that the battery life of the 325 is somewhat less than that...

  • I think the 436 and 396 are the same plastic. The reason the 396 feels more solid is because it's smaller (not as much flex). But I too would have loved a 436 in the case size of the 396 for many reasons. One thing the 325 has over the 396 is the larger display. Joe M.

  • I don't believe the USB-1 is compatible with the BC296D or SC200. Joe M.

  • And even if it's the same radio, was it subjected to some condition which damaged it such as using a tee connector to connect the scanner and a transceiver to the same antenna or even on a separate antenna placed too close to a transmitting antenna? I used to sell a ton on eBay. Once I had a buyer ask for a specific Motorola manual I didn't normally sell. Well, I purchased it and...

  • I think you are making your case weaker. The scanner supports ESK without any additional hardware. If he has an ESK system, he simply needs to program it. Joe M.

Do you think that may be what he needs to do? thanks

  • One major point to convey to the buyer: ESK is not ProVoice. They are two different things. Joe M.

  • You would use the ESK feature on analog EDACS systems that use ESK on the control channel. I'm not sure there is a setting to "enable ESK". I think it just automatically uses it on such systems. Perhaps someone with an ESK system can chime in with details on use. Joe M. On 5/11/2017 7:25 PM, thewestoutdoorphotography@^$1 [BCD396XT] wrote: > > > Thank you for your answer. I only...

  • OK. You switched gears half way through that post, then switched back again. ESK is supported, so the guy is wrong. ProVoice is not supported and a firmware cannot overcome that fact. The manual is exactly correct. EDACS ESK is supported, but ProVoice decoding is not. ESK is used on the control channel and has nothing to do with the voice channels. If you said it would decode...

  • Yes, the 396 works on 700 MHz. When was it stated that Cellular was to vacate the 869-894 MHz band? (they have never used the 851-869 MHz band) Joe M.
