• 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:

That's cool. Congradulations.

I wish mine would be here by the 4th. But it looks like the 6th for me from my estimates at least unless I pay for faster shipping....and I really hate to do that. It feels like a waste, but I may have to make an exception.

You'll have to post some pics and your thoughts when you get it!

Congrats!

I fully intend on programming a lot of my BCT 15 by hand. I know, such a large task! But after buying the BR330T, and the BCT 15, my scanner funds are too low to purchase software at this point. I will probably just program my local stuff first, then add the other programming after I get the software. Then again, I may give up half way through and find $30 to buy the software, lol.

Once I build my funds back up, I may opt for ARC software for the web import feature and being able to search for duplicates. I like UASD, but I miss some of the features ARC offers too. Dunno, I'll make the decision once the time comes.

I never had the 998 but I have no issues with the 15. What specifically would you like me to look for?

I started to hold off and wait. I had the silk print issue with my BCD396T and it made me really mad when it happened. But, Uniden was great about fixing it, no cost to me. So I figued, I would pre-order the BCT 15. Hey, if it breaks, they'll fix it or give me another. They even pay for the shipping both ways.

Not really anything to worry about except that you may have to do without for about 2 weeks.

I guess it doesn't bother me.....until somethinig breaks, then I'll be mad again. lol

Safetyobc,
We both seem to be heading to the same collection of radios. I have used Butel software before with a 780 I had and I really like it.
But, it is just way to easy to use all three UASD programs between the 330,396, and I will assume the 15.

I've not had any ruboff issues, no performance problems, nothing at all that would make me even start to suggest people hold off til the masses get them.

I was going to wait until over the holiday weekend, but what the hell. I placed my order this morning. I will be anxiously waiting to get this one going.
