MaryLou:

DE is NOT all encrypted! 

The State is P25 Phase I and most law is encrypted along with National Guard and Corrections, but almost all fire and local law/beach patrol/public works are "in the clear". There are a bunch of new talkgroups for local fire use.

Your 996 should get all of them.  Check Radioreference.

I retired after 41 yeast with the State of Colorado State Patrol, then 10 years Motorola software support.
When I started in 1962, I did radio repair installs and tower work,  then I went into communications/dispatch.
I managed a 911 center for 26 years dispatching to state county and city agencies.

Thank you MaryLou. I have 4- Bearcats 996P2 as well as a Radio Shack 2006 and 2-Pro97. Not much of Virginia  is encrypted  yet especially  around where I live but my passion  is listening to Military Aviation Freqs. Hang in there try again and pass that Ham test. Never give up it's  rewarding. Thanks for your compliments it sure makes it much better to deal with my disability knowing the sacrifices  I gave.

     No Jeff and Dewey by all means don't  submit a resume if you don't  want  to. It is strictly voluntary. A member of this group thought it was a great idea for the ones that wished to, to submit their resumes as a way for us to get to know each other in the group.

I retired after 41 yeast with the State of Colorado State Patrol, then 10 years Motorola software support.
When I started in 1962, I did radio repair installs and tower work, then I went into communications/dispatch.
I managed a 911 center for 26 years dispatching to state county and city agencies.
The last 5 years of my career I worked in IT installing computer aided dispatch across the state.

I'm also an amateur radio operator involved locally and with all the amateur digital modes.

When I was in high school in Arizona during the early 1970s, the
counselors hounded me about what I wanted to do after school.  I did
not know.  Then in my Junior year I bought a Radio Shack Patrolman
Pro-7A scanner (with crystals).  I installed it in my 1972 AMC
Gremlin and started chasing police calls on Friday and Saturday
nights.  Family, friends, and even my mom sometimes accompanied
me.  That was when I decided that I wanted to go into Law Enforcement.

I spent 5 years as a city police officer in Arizona and California
before going federal in 1984.  I spent 14.5 years as a Special Agent
with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) which included
4.5 years stationed in Naples, Italy.  The last 5.5 years I was a
Special Agent with the EPA Office of Inspector General in San
Francisco doing computer crimes investigations.  I retired 16 years
ago this coming August.

I now have a Uniden BCD536HP desktop scanner, a BCD436HP handheld,
and a BCD396XT handheld.

And, yes, my mom still has my Patrolman scanner hooked up at her
house.  It still received Phoenix Fire.
