• 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:

NSRS and the New BC15

The new Bearcat BC15 is now available and it has several features that making monitoring easier and more interesting especially when it comes to trunking. From my own experience using one if you program a trunking system like the NSRS you create one system (unlike the BC330, 396, 246 ) and you can create as many sites as you want within that one system. Thus when you enter talk group IDs' to scan you only have to enter them ONE time for the entire system unlike the other radios where you must enter them for each site that you have programmed. The older radios treated each site as a seperate system but not the BC15. Of course you can lock out individual sites as desired and if you have a GPS device attached to the radio and have it programmed correctly with coordinates for each site and a radius the radio will turn on and off automatically the sites as you drive around the service area. A very nice feature. I found the radio at Radio World in Boulder City this morning and I suspect other dealers have the radio. You will like it if you want something better than what you have.
