Hello
I am new to programming and am trying to use the import from RR feature in bcTool to use on my BCD996t. I have imported a bunch of things and organized it all down into simple categories for scanning. I backed it all up in sections in case of a weird failure. Well, I put my new programming onto the scanner and am not getting anything. The logger shows a bunch of 1 second hits on various freqs but no audio is coming through. Any suggestions? I can load up my programming onto here if anyone feels it necessary to take a look at it. I know phoenix is really busy and I should be hearing SOMETHING at least. My old analog scanner is picking things up on simplex that my 996 isnt... any help or suggestions?

The file looks OK but I really don't know, I don't live in your area and can't be sure everything uploaded to the scanner correctly.

Ok, thanks for looking at it! I'll just try messing around a little bit and see what I can do. On a side note, what is that antenna in your profile picture?

Make sure that the channels are actually being scanned by selecting/deselecting to corresponding quick keys. An outdoor antenna increases reception dramatically but you should be getting something in. It took me awhile however now it is pretty straightforward.
