Is it the Scanner or is it Me ??????
I just bought a new BCT15X and can't get it to produce voice audio; only control channel data chatter. I have a 396T and a 996T and both are setting here playing like champs. I have programmed all 3 scanners the same way and have the rebanded frequencies for Indiana Safe-T programmed.
What I see and hear is when the 396T and 996T lock on a frequency and provide good quality audio the BCT15X will lock on that frequency as well and show the group and group ID, but the audio is only control channel data chatter. It doesn't pick up the voice channel. Conventional VHF systems work fine, but not 800 trunked.
I have tried programming the BCT 15X manually and also with freescan duplicating my 396T program. I get the same results both ways. Signal strength is fine. I have tried 3 different antennas creating different signal strength levels. I get the same results at 1 bar signal level as I do with 5 bars signal level. I have done numerous resets and reprogrammings.
I am starting to think I have a bad scanner. I will try calling Uniden support today and see what they have to offer. That should be interesting.
Short of some good info from a forum member or from Uniden looks like I will be returning this 2 day old new scanner.
