Re: BCD996XT vs. BCD996p2

The 996P2 will offer you everything the 996XT did but also can receive DMR transmissions with the software upgrade. My $.02? Get a 996P2.

Re: Eversource

According to Radioreference database this shows as Eversource Cape Cod;

451.12500 BM CC 1
TG 4
SL 2

Does that help? If you are using a SDS scanner it should be in there.

Re: Barnstable PD

My guess is that whatever fixes were made recently did not solve the issue. Keep both the conventional and trunk system talk group programmed, that way you won't miss anything.

May just be your location. That's a bit of distance from South Plymouth to hear Scituate with a stock antenna.

Re: Base Antenna

What are the lightning strike issues you have read? Just curious. I know a lot of people use Discones, but I wonder about the lightning strike issue that I've read about. Any other thoughts? I'm not looking to spend hundreds of dollars, but would like something with reasonable performance. Thanks, G...

Re: USB-1 Programming Cable

So I ordered the one from Amazon but triple checked my stash of various cables in the toolbox. I swear I checked them all but I found one that looked like it might work. Lo and behold, it did! Well, I now will have an extra, and the Amazon one was only $11, so a win win! Thanks everyone for your hel...

Re: USB-1 Programming Cable

Gary,

Will this work for programming my 436HP? Just want to verify before buying. That price is very cheap. Most cables are in the $22-$28 range.

USB-1 Programming Cable

Need some help, I recently tried to purchase the USB-1 programming cable that works with my BCD436HP and on two occasions I got the wrong cable. One was via eBay and the other from Ham Radio Outlet. These were described as programming cables. Both times I was sent a cable that is used for GPS and NO...

Re: Ham Radio on 143.4000 PL 110.9

It "was" used for Military Police I believe at Joint Base Cape Cod, but it may have been abandoned by the base. I monitor it quite a lot and rarely if ever do I hear comms from there, and I'm about 2 miles away.

Ham Radio on 143.4000 PL 110.9

Hearing scratchy but readable activity that definitely is NOT Camp Edwards Military chatter on this frequency. Ongoing conversations about nothing. Could possibly be FRS/GMRS? Anyone else hearing this lately? It's somewhat frequent. Definitely NOT from Joint Base, otherwise I'd be hearing it full qu...

A scanner that costs close to $700 and we are talking foil and electrical tape? No thanks, I'll pass on even considering this scanner. I am having great UHF and VHF analog reception for the most part. I am still skeptical sometimes, as I feel like it should be picking up things it may not be. (My SD...

Less is more for me. Running 3 scanners, a Uniden BCT15X, a Whistler WS1065, and a Uniden BCD436HP. 2 roof mounted antennas are a Diamond DJ130N, and a Diamond Discone.

Re: 2015 Nissan Rogue Install

Well, I don't know why I can't get a picture to upload. I select it from my computer, it looks like it loads but for some reason it does not show up? I'll keep trying. I'm not seeing any warning that it excedes size limitations so I'm at a loss.
