    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:

Bct15x pause problem - help!

Hi all and a very good morning from UK. I have the BCT15X which I received the other day. I am used to using the UBC800XLT and previous Uniden scanners before that.

I have a problem that I can't seem to find the answer to.
I have programmed in some UK Milair frequencies and scans as it should. However the scanner seems to HOLD when it picks up an active frequency as it should do. If there is a lot of talking, the scanner appears to be pausing audio every 1-2 seconds.

I thought it may be because it was either searching PRI or perhaps CLOSE CALL. All these are set to off.

I am using BCTool Software which shows the pause is every second. So it seems there is a break in audio.

It is causing problems because I am only able to listen to every other second at a time.

Can anyone assist please? I have tried to add 2 wav files so you get idea.
Kind regards

WX priority would be about every 5 seconds, though. On the BCT15X, if the break is every 2 seconds, most likely he has not turned off Beartracker.

Hi all and a BIG THANKS. I managed to turn off Beartracker. But it was still doing it. I had noticed I had PL, DT,HP BT at the bottom of the screen. I turned these off and hey presto, we are normal again.I guess this is because this unit is made for the US and not for EU.

For those who need to know how to do this:-
1. Look for one or more of the abbreviations, PL, DT,HP, or BT at the bottom of the display.
2. Press POL button repeatedly until both PL or DT disappear.
2. Press HP repeatedly until both HP and BT disappear.

The BCT15X manual on CD covers this in the file "StatebyStateScanning.htnl

Thanks again
