Question about Uniden BC246T Handheld Scanner

Open Question

Trunking I have a bc246t that is setup to recieve motorola type II system and all IDs are setup properely according to radio reference.com. The fleet map is all 0's as it should be for a type II system, but the scanner does not stop on and active ID. It displays it, but does not stop scanning and un-mute so i can hear a voice. Conventionally programmed it works perfectly. If I turn the squelch down so i hear static on an active ID i can hear a muffled voice through the static. What have I done wrong, the scanner is brand new

The BR330T is an analog only scanner. Prince William County's system is 800 MHz digital, which your scanner cannot receive. You can receive the fire department simulcast of "5A" (their fire dispatch channel) on 154.325 in analog mode.

SOURCE: 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!

Sorry dude but your going to have to take to the dealer !
DTC B1001 DTC B1025, B1035, B1045, or B1055 DTC B1259 DTC B1780
The radio does not function properly. The radio displays "CAL".
Install a scan tool. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. With the scan tool, perform the radio setup procedure. Refer to Radio Setup . Turn OFF the ignition. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.

Cannot recieve new Motorla trunking Feq after system upgrade on my Pro 95 scanner. What can I do?? Thanks, Ron


Hi.

They probably went into a digital trunking system. Your Pro-95 will only handle Edacs, Type I and II standard trunking.

Or they changed the trunking voice frequencies and the data (control channel) frequency.

Which system are you trying to listen to? Which city area ??

How to create my own layouts?


Both the MTX8000 B5 & B7 models are Type II Trunking. If you are (un)lucky enough you might find an F3 modem that does Type II.
If it is an MTX8000 and has a front mounted display with either a 6 button or full keypad, you have a radio that will do Type II.
There were a few B3's that were Type II produced by Motorola. However, you can clone a Type II code plug into a B3 radio and it will work just fine.
You can run system watch using a MTS2000 handheld. Firmware version has to be above 5.44 (which has a 512k controller in it). Most MTS2000/MTX8000's only have a 256k controller, which will not work. You can put the radio into RF modem mode from the F4-F4-F4 (Trunking Config).
NOTE: When the radio is in the RF MODEM mode, it will do a self test and then the screen will go blank. The radio DOES NOT have to be programed to the system you want to watch. You set SYSTEMWATCH to the Spectra with RIB mode (works best). Even watches Type I systems.
If you have the accessory adapter for the side connector on the radio, the typical schematic of the speaker mic looks like this.
If you are using a Public Safety speaker mic with the radio, you might want to order part number 3205514W01 to cover the antenna connector on the radio.
If you are trying to program a MTX-838, from what we've heard, you need to use the MTSX software. The RVN4097F ver R02.10.01 RSS package specifically shows it programs the following radios: MT/MTS2000 MTX838/8000/9000. Now, the update for this software is RVN4097M R06.00.00 05 Sept 97, which should mean that it should program the radio as well. The cable you need is the standard MTSX programming cable.
Do you want to build your own programming cable? If you don't want to use an old speaker mic cable, see the individual part numbers of the parts for the Service Cable, below.
You may want to look at the schematic for the RKN4035D Service Cable. This is the actual Motorola cable used for programming and servicing these radios.
The individual part numbers for the components of this cable are listed below.

Pro-164 scanner stops receiving when Motorola talk-ids are progra


I had to buy the Radio Shack USB cable 20-047 and install
the driver for it and then I downloaded a program named
"Win97" from the www.starrsoft.com website as listed
on page 21 of the Pro-164 manual. The cable costs
$34.99 and with tax you are looking at about $37.88.

The "Win97" software must be registered for it to work
after a 30-day free trial period. That's approx $25.00.

This is the ONLY WAY to go !! You put in everything
on the software GUI and then upload it to the PRO-164.
Works like a champ !!!!!!

I just upgraded my firmware to version 2.6...will this scan garland, tx police


If Garland is using a conventional system or an analog trunking system, the BC246T can handle it. If they've gone digital, there's nothing you can do to the scanner to pull them in. For a list of the Garland systems and frequencies, check RadioRefernce.com or CityFreq.com

DTMF Keys


Here is a link to a very good explanation: http://www.genave.com/dtmf.htm

Typically in radio we see DTMF used two ways:

1) To turn a device on and off. Such as irrigation systems on a golf course. The golf course groundskeeper can simply use the DTMF keypad on his radio to type in the appropriate code to turn the sprinklers on or off.

2) When linked with the appropriate repeater and equipment, it can be linked to a land line telephone system, and then make and receive calls.
