• 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:

Butel, bcTool, and Freescan are 3 that come to mind. Butel and Freescan are both found in this forum, Google bcTool.
BCtool has no help files for the trunking. Freescan I couldn't figure out. Win95 was so easy to use. It's a shame there isn't one for it.

Google? HAH Just look at the wiki article for the BCT15 - all the software has links there...

http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/BCT15

Also there is the link for the Easier to Read manual for the BCT15- highly recommended, especially if you have programmed older radios before. DMA radios are a whole 'nother animal - remember, no banks....

BCTool is freeware and it's being developed by a guy in England. Some of the trunking used over there isn't used here. Which is not to say he won't get it right at some point, I think he will. OTOH, if you want something that is developed and has a help file as well as email support, get ARC15Lite. It does all the programming you want, you just won't have the stuff you probably don't need like virtual control and audio recording.
