• 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:

If I use freescan to program my scanner (bcd996xt) will it erase everything already on the scanner or will it just add to what is already there?

Depends on what you tell it to do when you upload. See this image from the user guide;

File:FS upload queued v8.JPG - The RadioReference Wiki

In general, when you get a new DMA radio, it's wisest to dump the pre-programmed contents first, then save them away. Then when you are ready to start your own programming, use the 'Erase All Systems and Settings' button for your first attempt. Thereafter, you can decide whether to replace or add...best regards..Mike

When ever I go to upload a new "code plug" to my 396XT, I always save it to my laptop with the date in the file name, that way if I want to go back to a previous code plug, I have it on file.
