Need help with mscomm programming. I down loaded the file from Radio Ref and them uploaded it to the BCD996xt I just got. Thought it would be just a matter if uploading it to the scanner, but I'm not receiving anything. Can anyone help?

If you used freescan make sure to set the system type to P25 not Motorola/P25

Thanks!
My pc is on the floor and with the short programming cable the scanner was on the floor in a corner behind a solid desk. Once I moved it up on the desk I started receiving.

My father (Cape Elizabeth fire chief) just called me and said he hasn't heard anything out of the Motorola system since yesterday on either of his 996p2's so I would say they've switched to the p25 system. Can anyone confirm?
