The Electronic Communications Privacy Act of , as amended, makes it a federal crime to intentionally intercept cellular or cordless telephone transmissions or to market this radio when altered to receive them. Page Terminology What is Searching? The BCD can search each of its 27 bands to find active frequencies. The scanner automatically chooses between two speeds while searching. Not only does your new BCD scan channels like a conventional scanner, it actually follows the users of a trunked radio system.
If you're a new scanner enthusiast, you may want to read the first part of this manual and use your scanner in conventional mode before you begin trunk tracking. Eastern Time Monday through Friday. Central Time Monday through Friday. Page Setup Connecting an Antenna You must install an antenna before you can operate the scanner. You have been provided a standard telescopic antenna that works well with this scanner, but you may want to purchases another type to increase the range.
Page Typical Mounting Methods Typical Mounting Methods The BCD can be conveniently mounted on a table, bulkhead, overhead, or any other desired location refer to figure below for typical mounting methods. Caution: Make sure there are no hidden electrical wires or other items behind the desired location before proceeding.
Caution: You must use a power source that supplies Page Desktop Installation Desktop Installation You can place this scanner on a desk, shelf, or table to use it as a base station. Flip up the feet for desk installation. Extend the antenna to full vertical position. Adjust the angle for best reception. The scanner automatically starts scanning. Since there are no frequencies programmed in your scanner initially, you may not receive any signals.
Once you set the squelch and program some frequencies, you will be hearing conversations regularly. It is recommended that you read the next part "Understanding the Menu System" because it will assist you in accessing and understanding many of the features. Later in a section called "Additional Features", you will find explanations on how to disable the keypad acknowledgement tones, to mute the audio, to change the appearance of the display and other general features.
Four frequency plans apply to the Control Channel Only feature for details see page If you are near an unusually strong signal source, the signal may overload the scanner. The scanner may stop repeatedly on that signal and miss other transmissions. Use your own recording device plugged into the jack on the back of the scanner. The following options are available for the selected trunk bank only.
Page 27 The call is initiated by a radio and is directed to another single radio. Within the system, no one outside of these two users hears the conversation. This means the BCD will occasionally stop on data signals and unmodulated transmissions.
Page Programming Before the BCD can begin conventional scanning, you must program a frequency into at least one channel. Repeat this procedure for each channel you want to program.
Storing Frequencies into Channels in Menu Mode 1. Select frequencies you received from your dealer, from various sources on the internet, or from one of the guides listed on page Page Transfer Frequencies Transfer Frequencies You can transfer a frequency that has been stored in a channel to another channel. Press TRNFR, and the smallest empty channel number along with the frequency will flash on the display. Press E and the frequency can be stored in this channel.
Page Beep Alert numbers and punctuation marks. After entering the desired text, press E. To clear a mistake while entering the letters, press repeatedly until the display is cleared. Beep Alert The scanner can alert you with three beeps at the beginning of a transmission on an assigned frequency.
Page Scanning 1. After programming frequencies, simply press SCAN to begin scanning. The bank indicators selected for scanning appear on the display, and the bank being currently monitored flashes. You can deselect banks from active scanning by entering their number on your keypad. If you're near an unusually strong signal source, the signal may overload the scanner. Page Channel Lockout 1.
Press MENU. Select the channel number of the stored frequency to be delayed by rotating the VFO and pressing E. Page Restoring A Locked-Out Channel Lockout in Scanning Mode If the scanner keeps stopping on a particular channel due to noise or frequent transmissions, you may want to keep that channel from scanning. Wait until the scanner stops on the channel. If a signal is present on the priority channel, your scanner monitors the channel until the transmission ends, then resumes normal scanning.
You can designate one channel in each bank as a Priority Channel. The BCD can search up to 10 separate frequency ranges to help you discover new stations in your area. To set a Search Range, enter into the Menu mode. Page Starting Chain Search 2. Data Skip A scanner will normally stop on any transmission it receives.
You can automatically skip many of these types of transmissions during search. Page Frequency Skip Frequency Skip If a particular frequency continues to interrupt search scanning, it is possible to set your scanner to skip the frequency.
See Page 91 for a listing of the tones that the BCD decodes. The scanner will stop on any transmission except those which may be using the locked subaudible tone. To set your scanner, enter into the Menu mode. If there is a range that you do not want an option to apply, then simply enter the range number on the numerical keypad.
Page Service Search The Service Search feature allows you to scroll through the following twelve preprogrammed services. The frequencies selected for these services are the most commonly used around the U. Page Service Search Skip Hold mode. Page Testing The Alert Siren Testing the Alert Siren To test and recognize the difference between the types of alert sirens, perform the following steps: 1. These systems are described here.
STEP 2: Programming Trunking Frequencies After you finish selecting the bank and trunk type you want to track, store the frequencies in the channels for your selected bank in your scanner. When you designate a bank as a trunking bank, your scanner sets up 10 Scan Lists, which are simply lists used to store your favorite Talk Group IDs. Page 53 decimal key for the "dash". Press E. The setting periods can be changed See page In a few key presses, you can specify a single talkgroup, a fleet, or an entire agency in all the above modes.
Press SCAN to begin scanning the lists you have programmed. Hint: Press and hold RSM for 2 seconds, the scanner will move to the next trunking bank. You should read the appropriate parts of this guide to understand the formats. For information about Scan Lists see page For LTR systems only, the talkgroup must be active in order to change the Scan List and bank indicators.
If the talkgroup is not active, change the Scan List by using the Menu screen. Your BCD can receive these transmissions. How you receive I-Calls depends on whether you are in Search or Scan mode. During I-Call reception the display will show the Unit ID number of either the transmitting or receiving mobile unit, not a talkgroup. After the scanner finishes checking a trunked system for activity, it will conventionally scan the other frequencies in the bank remember, only trunking frequencies are programmed in Trunk mode.
To scan a mix of trunking and conventional banks, select the banks you wish to be active, and then press SCAN. Page Edacs Reception Notice how the dotted line shows talkgroup moving from channel to channel.
Your BCD can clearly and automatically follow this talkgroup, or any other, as you select. EDACS systems are organized in a logical way that keeps related talkgroups together.
