As I posted in the APCO-25 forum, the 796 that I bought on ebay arrived today. The first frequency I was able to partially decode was Derry, NH PD on 151.010. I have been getting a weak signal on 151.400, but not enough to switch over to digital yet.

At this point, I think all of the APCO-25 that I'm going to receive will be DX. The big reason why I got the 796 is that it will be able to function when rebanding takes place with a firmware update.
