• 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:

I work at a TV station in Scranton Pa. For years we've had a remote scanner placed at our transmitter site, but it would only recieve low/vhf and uhf. The hill it's on a RF "hell" and VHF in the scanner was REALLY desensed.
Anyway--we tried several scanners and I was convinced that we'd never find a solution. We just purchased a new Uniden and wow---we can actually hear VHF in our outlying areas.
This is the scanner we purchased.

You should have much of the same reception with the BCT15 that your BCD996T has too if you need additional radios without P25. Uniden did a great job on both of these models.

I do those type of installations and found that using a rubber duck, ATT and PL/DPL tone works better than any other combo. Good Luck on new installation .
