• 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:

Does anyone have a FREEWARE Link for Software to program and/or control the BC780XLT? the version of Scan-Cat lite is a pain in the rear. and most of the links listed in the Link or download area don't work half the time.

Thanks

Actually that first link should read:

http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/BC780XLT

That's OK anyway Dave, you made the effort - that's more than most...

Max, the 780 Yahoo group has a freeware programmer called 'Andy's Programmer' (or it's similar...) that I understand is Excel based. There's also AFS780 and Control Freq Jr.- both are also freeware (I did a review on both of them using my trusty old 245 - sure wish I had a 780 - they're probably the best milair scanner....). You can find links to those reviews on the Strong Signals link Dave gave you, or the page above.

Thanks, I just downloaded AFS780 sweet program. I love my 780 but for years have been manually programming it. This will be a big help (and its not goofy like Scan Cat) thanks again.
