    What are these licenses?

    One DMR upgrade key enables all of the DMR modes. EDACS ProVoice is digital and is no longer being supported. Unless you have a ProVoice system you want to monitor, it would be a waste of money. Most users are changing to other types of systems. One other upgrade to consider is NXDN if you...

    10888 help please.

    Sounds like you are in firmware update mode. Connect the scanner to the computer. Using EZ Scan, go to the Updates tab and Check for CPU Firmware Update.

    Hickory Public Safety

    From your screenshot, it appears that you are receiving the 856.9375 control channel that is in the database. There are a lot of talkgroups for Catawba County on the VIPER system. There is a patch for Hickory PD but I don't know how often it is active. I suggest that you check with someone on...

    SDS100: FL Quick Key

    Quick keys use only numbers so that they can be entered from the keypad and be displayed on the screen in the upper left corner. Instead of using a 2 digit code for each character, you can name a favorites list by selecting the characters using the rotary control on top of the scanner. It is...

    Programming too many talkgroups in Arc-xt pro

    The 500 ID limit is due to the scanner, not the software. The limit is 500 ID's per group. You can have up to 20 groups in each system. It is better to separate similar talkgroups in separate groups to give you control over what you want to monitor. Were you trying to put all of the...

    BCD996P2: Need Help Programming System

    853.8625 is not listed as a frequency for the PG County system. If that is in a large font, the scanner probably found it as a close call frequency. If you see a symbol at the bottom right corner of the scanner screen, close call is turned on. If it is, press the squelch knob a couple of...

    BCD325P2: bcd325p2

    If you have the latest version, the upgrades already reside in the firmware of your scanner. You need to purchase a separate key to enable each of the 3 upgrades available. Unless you have an EDACS ProVoice digital system you want to monitor, the ProVoice upgrade would be a waste of money...
