Hey everybody-
I currently have the Uniden BCT-8. I think its time to switch to the BCT-15. Many people have told me that it is a good scanner. I would like a little more feedback however.
If you have a BCT-15, please post what you think of it.

Here's some questions I have:
Where is the best place to purchase a BCT-15?
What are the ups & downs about the BCT-15?
Is it easy to program with the tags?

Any feedback is appreciated.

Peter -
I sold my BCT-8 to fund my BCT-15. Don't think twice about it...

Here are the obvious differences -
PL, Alpha-tag, up to 2500 memories (2000 more than the BCT-8) and 100 System keys, broken down to 10 groups in each system

There really isn't much to hate about the BCT-15.
The TEMP L/O is a great feature
I love the dynamic memory configuration
You need software to program it. Use the BUTEL software or have me program it for you

Sound on it is OK. External speakers make it that much better.
There is a BIG learning curve on the radio - so keep the book handy.
I wasn't going to get a BCT-15, but can image not having it around now.. I use it as my go-to radio when I want to focus on just a few freqs instead of listening to 'everything'.

There are quite a few places to pick-up the BCT-15. You can try the Cop Shop in Massapequa and see if they can get one for you.. Or, you can try online at Scannermaster .  A google search should get you some places to pick one up at a good price.

Let us know what you decide.

Thanks Phil, I'll look into it some more and I'll make my decision. Thanks for the feedback.
