    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:

I have just programmed my BCT 15 using the registered version of the software. The problem I am having is I can only Receive the Ocean County Trunk System in the ID Search Mode. It will not receive in the ID Scan mode. I have all the Tags programmed properly, the freqs are all correct and my settings are as follows.

Status Bit - Enabled
End Code - disabled
Modulation- Auto
Attenuator- disabled

Band Plan

Base 505.0000
Step 12.5 Khz
Offset 380

Seems to me everything is okay. Any ideas ?

Yeah, Okay. My big screw up. Never put a zero before the ID even if it appears in the database you got it from. Apparently BCT 15 cancels out the ID if the first digit is a zero. I'm an ass, what can I tell you. At least it's working now.

Nah, you're not an ass. We all screw up once in a while. If we didn't we wouldn't be human. At least you found the mistake and got it working, and that's all that really matters.
