• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Gentlemen, I just had a BC250D given to me with a copy of E-Scan but no programming cable. I only found one new in Canada! does any body out there have one I could use or buy second hand. I only need it to put in around 300 frequencies so i don't have to take forever doing it by hand.! After that I'll have no use for it, thats why I'd like to borrow or rent one from somebody than spend all out doors for something I'm only gonna use once!! Russ

Or you can order direct from RFGuys and avoid any extra processiing fees eBay might charge...

Scanner Programming Cable Bearcat / Uniden

Of course all this assumes you're using an older PC with a real serial port - if you're using a newer PC without any, an USB-serial cable is required...

best regards..Mike

Or you can buy a USB A mini connector (A is 4 pin) with a full size A connector on the other end (which I cut off leaving it with a couple of incyhes of cable, in case I need it later) for about $1, a 9 pin D connector for a few bucks and connect them (the hookup diagrams are all over the web). $30 for $5 worth of parts seems a bit excessive to me.
