• 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 have a BCT996T and an seriously thinking about the BCT15. Since they seem to be the same scanner except for the digital capabilities of the 996T, I wonder how I can share files/programing quickly between them both?

I have the UASD and BuTel software for the 996T already.

Since several of you have both, can you tell me what you are doing?

I use the UASD for the 396, 330, and BCT-15. It is as easy as using Windows Explorer and copy and pasting system files from one to the other.
The only issue I have had is you cannot copy and paste digital systems from the 396 (or 996 in your case) to a non-digital scanner.

Actually, I copy from my 396 to my 330 with no problems. The digital settings are simply ignored on the 330 & do not even show up in it's version of UASD. Copying from either the 330 or 396 to the 246 ( or 246 to either 396 or 330) requires a quick key edit, since the 246 only has 10 quick keys & both the 396 and 330 have 100.( I don't do copy & paste. I use Windows Explorer to drag & drop files between folders.)

I don't have either the 15 or 996, but somewhere I believe there was a comment by UPMan that UASD was supposed to be compatible for them..

However, copying a multi-site system from either the 996 or 15 back down to a 396/330/246 would cause problems since they don't have multi-site capability.

I use the same files for UASD246/330/15/396/996 with absolutely no issue.

Can I upload using the 996 UASD software or do I have to have the BCT15 UASD software?
