• 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:

Why are Scanners so Difficult?

Done! (and I've slightly edited the original to clarify Mot 800/900 vs UHF/VHF and the need for frequencies)

Thats a fantastic guide! But there is just one thing that I am wondering about. Now I know your kind of the guy who was behind the 996 and everything, but under system frequencies it says "For Motorola VHF and UHF systems you need to know all frequencies.". This is somewhat contradictory to my experience, where on a type II VHF system simply entering the control channel frequency in addition to the base, step , and offset is all that is needed to monitor the system.

Oops, you are right, CPU. I so seldom actually scan these types of systems myself, a few of the details manage to get warped.

I've updated the OP to reflect corrected description.

Very nice
I wish I would have had that a few days ago when I was pulling my hair out trying to program my new BCD996T
