I have [4] 996P2's in the house and truck and the main thing I  listen to is civilian and military air frequencies  due to so much encryption in the area. I haven't  experienced  a problem with the air frequencies and as far as the ham frequencies I  haven't  tried to scan those due to I have a ham transmitter and don't  won't  to transmit and forget to turn off the scanners first so have no idea about the ham frequencies.  It has to be something your doing or not doing my friend

Systems locked out?  I am assuming you are attempting to enable those
two systems via Quick Keys.  Lockout will still kill them as I recall (I
never use system lockout).

Yes I am using the system quick keys. It’s saying they are unlocked, but systems 2&3 won’t scan. Don’t know why.

Hello

I'm in Canada

I have a BCD436HP with DMR and NXDN upgrades

I was listening today to some NXDN on Railway  AAR 88 (161.430MHz)  which is the same as the US channel 88

I might enter these frequencies into a couple of different digital systems and see if that finds anything. Before my digital scanner days these channels would annoy me because they would stop my scan

Thanks

First, those are not railroad frequencies. Those end at 161.610 MHz.

Second, they are in the Federal Band which

Most likely NXDN - since that is what the railroads will all eventually be using.

Class 10 won't work? Where did you get this from?

<<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfBHe-4Bfvs>>
(not only class UHS3, but 128GB)

I've been using UHS3 (AKA U3 - equivalent of class 30 - 30
MBPS - next step above class 10 10MBPS) in my scanner for a year.

Likely the reason you saw is due to the manufacturer
difference. I have some cards that are pretty crappy
performers. I stick with name brand cards. I have a favorite
brand I use, but I don't want to start a Chevy-Ford war.
