• 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:

The USB cable looks to the software as a Com (serial communications) port. Check "Device Manager" (you can search for it pressing Start and typing "Device Manager" in the area that says "Search programs and files"). It should show up under "Ports (COM & LPT)". It'll probably show up with a name like "USB Serial Port (COM4)". Select the Com port associated with that name (Com 4 in my example).

Hope this helps!

Usb Cable

If you are using a USB Cable with a BCD996XT, you need to download a driver file and install it. You can find it in a google search or on the AntennaMaster website.

In the download windows select the correct com/usb port.
When you plug the usb cable in the PC it is assigned a com number and can be found in the windows device manager. Also make sure you installed the correct driver for your usb device.
