    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.

With the scanner hooked up, select RS232 Setup in BC246T menu. Click AutoDetect and wait for the program to find the scanner. Click Ok.

Back to BC246T menu, select Send Data or press F6.

Great, glad I could help.

I've never laid eyeballs on a 246 so can't help with the lockout.

I told you to use the Select All button on the groups when you were importing, not paying attention to your mention of Police and Fire groups in your original post.. You could try re-sending only PD, Mutual Aid and Fire groups to scanner.
