• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

I just got my bc246t in the mail today that I got from an ebay store ... I've done business with the guy before and never had problems ... but, the box for the 246 wasn't shrink wrapped like my bxt15 box was ... should this concern me? I mean the scanner is in perfect condition, but little things like the power cord and the programming cable look like they have been taken out of the bag and then carfully placed back in and re-taped ... it urks me lol

edit:

ok, I answered my own question ... I turned it on for the first time and the mfer is programmed for "Cuyahoga" .....

Don't go overboard yet there is a lot of preprogrammed stuff in the scanner right out of the box. I believe Cuyahoga CONVT is one of them. Is this stuff in under System Quick Key 9 that's where all the preprogrammed stuff is I believe.

you're always right Jerri :p

damnit it is qk9 ... my bad folks, I guess I jumped the gun....

*insert foot in mouth*

I guess I was just expecting the shrink wrap like my BCT15 :confused:


edit: but how did quick key 9 get enabled, because it was the only one turned on?

Ckeck everything programmed in there under 9. As a matter of fact the UASD software has everything preprogrammed in the thing stored in the software.
Somehow I think a lot of that stuff was still in my memory even though it didn't show up as if it was.

I agree with Jerri.. When I got my 246T it was not shrink wrap, and all those pre-program stuff was on there also. I deleted all that stuff and It has worked fine. I dont think I have ever seen a 246T wrapped

I've never seen a shrink wrapped scanner from Uniden. I'd be more concerned if about a shrink wrapped box than a none shrink wrapped box.

My point was that Uniden doesn't shrink wrap their boxes. At least not the ones I've bought. The seller might have done that, but I'd wonder why.

Bottom of the barrel stuff huh?


That just sounds nasty, 12 pk for $6. Keystone is not even that cheap and that will just about give you the squirts for a year.

I always remember going to Mets games at Shea Stadium in the late 60's early 70's and coming home smelling like I believe Rhinegold from having it spilled on you from either passing it down or by people behind you.
I remember that commercial somewhat but there was a slightly more refined one I remember better, but couldn't find it.
