The Bearcat BC-296D scanner covers from 25 to 1300 MHz (less cellular and UHF TV) in 27 bands. It has 1000 channels (10 x 100). Sophisticated total channel control allows the user to program:  delay, step, mode priority and attenuation on a per-channel basis. This scanner also has twelve preprogrammed service searches. Trunk tracking is supported. This scanner will also serve as a S.A.M.E. weather alert monitor and has one-touch weather. Additional features include: full frequency display, backlit keypad, rubberized grips, alphanumeric tagging, turbo scan, clone mode, CTCSS/DCS, beep alert, data skip, attenuator, VFO roller control, backlit holographic LCD and more.

TrunkTracking IV technology is supported (EDACS, Motorola, LTR, APCO). But clearly the most impressive BC296D feature is the built in APCO 25 digital capability. You will be able to monitor both analog and most digital radio transmissions (including 9600 baud).
