Greetings from Kansas, USA
« on: 12 Jun 2013, 07:16:34 »
Hello, I am very interested in the decoding hobby.
I had no idea of the detail you could get from a trunk channel until I found your site, and did more searches and found the software to do such.
I have a BCT15X, and BCT996XT.
I tried to tap my BCT15X, however my solderer got too hot, and the pad lifted right off the board.. :( Bummer........

So Now I am waiting to get a lower wattage soldering iron before tapping my BCT996XT.

I currently scan a Motorola II Simulcast system, 800mhz, analog.
How ever they are installing a brand new EDACS P25 Digital system as we speak.

I'm new to this part of the "scanning" hobby, and I am very impressed. Any guidance is much appreciated.

A word of warning: be careful! A scanner contains sensitive components that are easily damaged. Let someone else make the modification if you don't have sufficient soldering experience.
