I don't have the BT (BearTracker) on anyway but I do have the HP (Highway Patrol) on.
What I hear most from that button is the state police which I don't mind listening to.
I log the frequencies that show up on the display when a channel is activated and the HP flashes.
That way, eventually I'll just program those into my scanner and I can then de-activate that button.
When I first loaded my county frequencies into my scanner with FreeSCAN and tried to erase all systems and settings, when it was all loaded, nothing would scan. The display said "Nothing to scan" even after I pushed the scan/search button. I thought I'd really screwed up my scanner until I noticed none of those buttons; PL, DT, HP, BT were displayed so I just started pushing the buttons until my scanner started working-again! Once I settled done I started pushing, to remove, the ones I didn't want.
I guess I hadn't realized the HP button controlled the Vermont frequencies.
I'll play with that button eventually.
