Try downloading something called FREESCAN. It works for the BCT15, BCD996T, and a few others. Its works great and its almost idiot proof. Its free software that works very well with radioreference.com. It programs itself.

I have uploaded a pdf format manual for you if you do not have this.

http://files.hpifdesigns.com/pdf/bcd996Tom.pdf

also I hear there is a cd that comes with it too this might be handy to locate as well.

if you are wanting police frequencies please do a search for them on google.com eg. "las vegas police frequencies" ect and you should find alot of codes for your area.

How do i program the bcd996t from radio reference into the scanner.


You must have an appropriate software program to transfer directly from Radio Reference. As far as I know, the BUTEL 996 package is the only one available to do this. You can find more information here:

http://www.butel.nl/products/bc996/bcd996.html

or there's a link to them on the Radio Reference site.

I've been using their software with my BCD996XT for over a year, and it's fantastic!

I have a uniden bearcat scanner and cant pick up my local police dept. I put the frequency in and still dont hear anything. I have a bc145xl 16 channel scanning radio and want to know if its compatible...


If you programmed the correct frequency, you should be getting reception. Check www.RadioReference.com to verify the frequency. Otherwise, you may be too far from the transmitter to receive signals. Try your scanner in other locations, check your antenna, and try receiving the PD on another scanner.

The MARCS - Ohio Multi-Agency Radio Communications system - is a Motorola Type II SmartZone Omnilink Trunking system that utilizes APCO-25 digital transmissions. Your BC145XL is not compatible with trunking or digital systems. In order to follow the MARCS you will need one of the following scanners:
GRE PSR-500, PSR-600
Radio Shack PRO-106, PRO-197, PRO-96, PRO-2096
Uniden BC250D, BC785D, BC296D, BC796D, BCD396T, BCD396T, BCD996T, BCD996XT, or the brand new HomePatrol-1

No clue how to program the scanner !!


Your best choice for software is the BuTel program. You can find it on Butel.com, ScannerWorld.com, or RadioReference.com. Once you have it installed you can download and program both conventional and trunked systems directly from RadioReference.com. I have the BCD996XT with Butel and RadioReference, and the combination works great.

Trunking no longer works on my BCD996T scanner, Conventional work


Hi Mike,

Try updating the firmware and see if this solves the problem. While I understand that it "worked before", some of the programming software has been updated to work only with the newer firmware. Also, the newer versions of programming software are required when importing systems directly from radio database sites (such as radioreference.com).

If this does not work, try to enter system data by hand rather than importing. If trunking works then, it sounds like a software problem with your programming software versus the radio itself.

Hope this helps!

Unable to program trunking after uniden download was completed


I would try redownloading and reflashing the firmware on the scanner. If this doesn't work, you may want to try downgrading to the previous version of the firmware. If you are unable to redownload the firmware from Uniden, there is a Yahoogroup dedicated to this radio.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BCD996T/join

Also in the files section, there are older versions of the firmware.

Hope this helps!
