I live in Clay,AL and we have reserve deputies. I checked the DB but the only talkgroup I see that is close to me is "Center Point patrol". Is this the tg the reserve deputies use for my area or is there another one they use? Thanks

Also, will a BC250D be able to pick up the Jeffco and Birmingham digital systems. It doesn't pick up 9600bps; will that be an issue? I don't have a digital scanner yet, I'm still looking for the right one at the right price and the BC250D seems to have both.

The BC250D is a digital scanner however the baud on it is 3600. I t will monitor a digital
system that is 3600 baud. the newer ones (i.e. 796d, 396d and the 996 and pro 96 from ratshack) can monitor 9600 baud systems like B'ham and Jef'Co. And their baud rate is 9600

Ok, thats good. I probably won't be using it outside of Birmingham and the BC250D(with the digital card) can be had for a lot less than the newer models.

My only gripes with the 250D I have are: No Battery Pack that uses Regular AA Batteries available and no matter what I try the "Motorboating" sound is still there at beginning or end of P-25 transmissions. But for the price, paid way Less than 500 bucks for it including the card! I will stick with it.




Void where prohibited....Now does that mean its ok to pee in the street?

Another question,

Will rebanding do anything to these systems or the scanner? Its a pretty newbish question, I know, but I'm still new to this and I want to make sure that the scanner I get will last me a while.
