    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:

Programming software for Uniden BCT 15?

Not open for further replies.
Mar 7, 2012
I operate an older Uniden scanner, a BCT15. I primarily use it for scanning aeronautical, railroad, and marine radio, and for this, it is quite sufficient for my needs. I have it rigged up with GPS to allow location based scanning.

Up to now, I have been using the freeware version of BCTools to program the scanner. However, in recent times, the location/GPS programming of BCTools has stopped working, and I note that the software was apparently last updated in 2010. Possibly this is a compatibility issue with Windows 10.

I would like to ask -- what are my other options for programming software for an older Uniden scanner? I'm quite happy with the scanner itself and how it works -- I would just like to update the programming. I would appreciate your thoughts.
