    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:

Hi Folks:-
Just wondering if any-one could help or have suggestions about a BC-890 that Ihave. The problem is that everything works well but when I un-plug or disconnect the power I loose all the programmed frequencies . Have to re-program every time there is a power loss. Any help or suggestions appreciated. Thank you
Dave

I'm going to bump this one to the top since I want to know too. There isn't much info about this scanner on the site. Is there a watch battery in this this thing? Volatile memory? Are we stuck leaving this thing plugged in?

My friend just gave me one of these. I've pretty much figured out programming it, but a manual for it or a Pro-2036 would be nice. A how-to for a discriminator tap would be great. That would probably be it's best use.

Well I know the pro 2035 and the 2042 have a battery on the board maybe you could take the case apart and look.

Its the lithium battery inside for sure. You'll have to unsolder the battery. I've done more than 20 of these.
