    Getting Started With SDR, What's Needed?

    How do I download DSD+ Fastlane? I know I need to donate, but do they send you a link to download it after you donate or how does that work?

    Getting Started With SDR, What's Needed?

    Thank you both for your feedback and to everybody else that's chimed in. I'm definitely going to tinker around with SDR. I'm sure I'll like it as there's a lot of tinkering that can be done and I like to tinker. I may have to wait awhile until spring when business picks back up for me. I do tree...

    Getting Started With SDR, What's Needed?

    Thanks for pointing those things out, yep I have came to realize those things already after doing further reading after making my original post. As I said though I have a lot of experience with scanners and computers but have never messed with SDR and had no knowledge of their capabilities or...

    Getting Started With SDR, What's Needed?

    I have never messed around with SDR and have always just had 2 or 3 typical scanners. I've done a little bit of research on SDR, not nearly enough yet. But enough so that I have decided that I'd like to get something set up and going. I'm familiar with scanners, very familiar with computers...

    Scanner Stuck on Close Call Help

    This is a csv file but I had to rename it to a .txt file in order for the site to allow me to upload it.

    Scanner Stuck on Close Call Help

    I use FreeScan for programming, virtual control, and recording. Do you need the .csv file?

    Scanner Stuck on Close Call Help

    Well I did something different that is doing something similar to the original issue only I can get out of it. Let me tell you a brief of what I have programmed. I created one system, a p25 standard digital xt, and add two sites, one for my county and one for an adjacent county. Under each site...

    Scanner Stuck on Close Call Help

    If I remember right the last thing I think I did and that happened before it started doing that was I was going thru the menu trying to learn what each option is for and was in menu > Search For... > Search and Store > My System(the system I created) then I selected Public Safety. I'm foggy on...

    Scanner Stuck on Close Call Help

    I have a BCD996P2 and not sure what I did or how I did it but when I try to go back out of menu to scanning the p25 system I had set up now the screen alternately flashes 'Close Call' 'Channels Found' and shows the control channel frequency for my system and a NAC. None of my group quick key...

    KSICS Anchor Thread

    I programmed KSICS in to my BCD996P2 for Linn county. I have LE, EMS, Fire, KBI, & Highway Patrol Troop H talkgroups but all I ever hear is Highway Patrol out of Chanute and a few Found Channels for JOCO Troop A and Miami County EMS. I know that Linn county still uses analog freqs. quite a bit...

    Is that just for conventional systems as shown in the screenshot. I don't have a NAC or Tone column in my Groups view. I thought I read somewhere that for Motorola systems it was F7E for receive all. Also wondering if something got screwed up with the band plan for my system I'm scanning. I...

    Thought I'd be hearing a lot more than what I am, I have heard a lot but 99% of it is Highway Patrol. I've heard a few from Miami County Hospital patient reports but nothing else. How do I set it to do a NAC search or receive all, I read thru the manual but can't seem to find the 'Set P25 Nac'...

    New to Digital Scanners - FreeScan Help

    Well I got the scanner in the mail about 20 minutes ago and got it hooked up, USBSER driver installed, double checked things the best I could from what I know so far, then I uploaded the system I created. I am hearing stuff for sure but on the screen while scanning I have 5 lines, the first...

    New to Digital Scanners - FreeScan Help

    I uploaded some screenshots of what I have set up in FreeScan. I left a lot of stuff default, some of it I wasn't sure on. Like I wasn't sure if I should I assign a quick key for each talkgroup or if since the quick key option in the first pic was set to by site and all the boxes were checked...

    New to Digital Scanners - FreeScan Help

    So in FreeScan are all of the options that are marked XT only or Digital XT only or XT scanners only applicable to the BCD996P2? I'm starting to get this figured out, Thanks for the links and all the help everybody. For the KSICS system the System ID is 1B2 and the WACN is BEE00, is there...

    New to Digital Scanners - FreeScan Help

    If this helps here is the stuff I would like to add from the KSICS link, let me know if this would work or if it's too much. I'm not sure about how the talkgroups work as there is no frequencies listed for talkgroups. Even though I just want to enter the frequencies for Linn and Miami county if...

    I thought Digital XT was for XT model scanners only. As I look around FreeScan I frequently see in parenthesis XT Scanner Only. How did you determine it to be a P25 Standard Digital XT system from looking at that link?

    New to Digital Scanners - FreeScan Help

    So besides Freescan are there better options that are free and if not free then reasonably priced programming software? How much better is ProScan? What options are available for the BCD996P2? I had read somewhere that FreeScan is virtually dead as far as development, is this true? I download...

    The Shack is Back

    And thank you for the welcome back as well. Yes I have been active on QRZ but haven't updated anything yet. QRZ is actually where I bought my new scanner. I was shopping for an HF rig on there and was trying to get an FT-991A or an IC-7300 but wasn't fast enough on the draw, everybody was...

    The Shack is Back

    Thanks for the welcome. Yep I was using Packet before I ever had internet and then when I did get internet I was telneting in to everything. I remember it was kinda frustrating for me because I was just getting in to computers too and couldn't type worth a crap so I'd get in to a node or couple...
