• 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:

My BCD 396T has many USA channels pre-programmed in. I will never use these channels. Is there an easy way to delete them from my scanner? Will the "freescan" program accomplish this? Actually, I only have one analog channel that I programmed into my scanner right now. (I don't know how to input any digital or trunking stuff yet........heh heh)

You can clear ALL MEMORY by holding down 2 - 9 - HOLD while turning the scanner on. When the screen asks you to Restore Preprogram List? press the .NO key.

396T now cleared.

Thanx for the answers to my question. I used "ARC demo" to clear all the channels and then tried "2-9-HOLD" while turning the scanner on. I can restore all the preset channels by selecting "E-yes" and delete them again by selecting "E-no".
