    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

BC-RH96 Questions

I managed to get a BC-RH96 remote head for my BCT15 recently .. though I do not have it yet but in preparation for the install, I have a few questions.

Can you use the serial port on the back of the scanner for the connection to the remote head ? I heard there may be a menu option for this ?

If so what pins on the DB9 are used and if so did you have to make your own cable or can you purchase one for this purpose ?

I am wondering what pins go to ring and tip on the 1/8 inch stereo plug if I had to make a cable ?

I created a serial cord for it using a $$ worth of stuff from Amazon. I don't recall exactly what I did but Google is your friend. I found all the info including the pinout online.
