It looks great,but looks a little more complicated then my old scanner that I bought more then 7 -8 years ago.

I haven't had much time to really look it over yet(i am at work).I see you can hook it to a computer,will probably have alot of question when i try and do that.

Also what is the ARC-15 for the Uniden BCT-15 software for.I just want to know what it does before I buy it.Don't want to buy something that I may not need..

I will try to program it tonight,if I have any trouble i may use your service to program it for me(I gut frustrated very easily if iit takes a while to figure things out,lol).Where are you located if I decide to drop it off for programing?

And one last question,what can the scanner do once it is connected to a computer.

I should have fun,but at the same time get annoyed while trying to program it and get to undestand the scanner tonight,lol.

I may be back on later tonight for more question.I just hope it is easier then it looks.

you can download a demo version of ARC15 if you wanted to try it out before you bought the software.

Depending on what version of ARC-15 you purchased, it opens up more things you can do with the scanner and the computer... For a list check here: [link]

To manually enter freqs:
First create a SYSTEM
Then inside the new system create a GROUP
You can put frequencies in the groups.
You can have more than 1 group per system.
You can assign Systems to quick keys, and you can more than 1 system per quick key.

Software is definitely the easier way to program the radio - and if you needed, I am always willing to do it for you..
