    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.

What is the difference that sets the price apart on the BCT996 and the BCT15?


They look the same but co$t is different....I'm guessing analog only on the '15?

Im new to Uniden scanners so cope with me heh.

Thanks
Ray.

BCD996T Digital, 6000 Channels

BCT15 Analog, 2500 Channels, has Beartracker feature.

The digital capability is what makes the price higher.

hope this helps.

So the 996 is like a 396...
...and the 15 is like a 330? :)

Sort of. They are, in effect, base/mobile relatives of the 396 & 330 respectively. However, they do have features, besides GPS, that the 396 & 330 do not have, such as selective start up configuration, temporary lockout. The BCT-15 does not have the same extendeded range frequency coverage of the BR330.

I would say the BCT15 is the mobile version of the BC246 with a few extra features
