    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:

Just about ready to order a BC996T...

I have a couple of questions regarding the programming cables.

1) What is the length of the Serial PC Cable included with the radio?
2) What is the length of the USB-1 Optional Cable?


Thanks!!

Sure, a USB extension cable will work just fine! Or, if you have a RS232 serial port on your PC, then you can use the DB9 serial port on the back of the scanner with either a null-modem cable, or null-modem adapter on a regular serial cable. Then you can go hundreds of feet!
