I have a serious problem. My BNC connection on my BCT15 was damaged, so i decided to change it. To remove it, it was not a problem but when i put the new one in place i did forget how to solder it :S Did any of you have a picture with a close up on the soldering on the BNC connection?

I think it's only 2 soldering : 1 - Ground 2 - Solder the capacitor on the "pin" is that right?

I think that is correct. I would temp wire and test with an antenna on a NOAA weather channel, then solder in place.

If the capacitor have been overheated, would it make the scanner not working?


Sorry for my bad english :p

Possibly, but doubtful, but the capacitor could be cracked or broken. Does it look damaged? Did you check the solder connections at the board and the BNC connector? Some digital volt meters have a built-in capacitor checker.
