I ordered the BCT15-X scanner. I am hearing it does not come with a manual. I have looked up things online on programming and it seems very involved. I am sure I will learn it in time. The more I program, the more I will understand. I am seeing it comes with a computer program interface. Is it easier to program through the computer or on the scanner itself? I would like to hear any pros and cons about this scanner as I plan on using it a lot. I had a trunking scanner before. It was a Radio Shack Pro 2053 which I paid about 400 dollars for way back when. I had good luck with that until it was stolen because someone liked it better than I did. I have conventional scanners up to 512MHz but want to listen to more of the trunked systems in my area. I've been reading about talk groups upper and lower frequencies and programming talk frequencies but not sure just how to do it yet. I expect to have the radio sometime next week. Really looking forward to programming and sharing information with people who have this scanner or others like it.
