Hi, today I recieved my 3500xlt and downloaded bctool. i have started to program the scanner via bctool.
So far I have two systems and two groups within as follows:
Civil Airports (Quickkey1)
Berry Head (2)
In each group I have my frequencies. When i press scan on the scanner is it scanning all the frequencies in each system and group??
Also when inputting the frequencies onto BCtool, do I only need to enter the Alpha and frequencies or do I need to change any of the settings?
Its so complicated to use. Going to take me a while I think
Yes the 3500xlt will be scanning all the freqs in the groups, if you want it to scan a particular system longer or change how long it waits until scanning again after it finds some activity you can adjust the hold & delay time.
You can alter some of the other settings in bctool if you like, its up to you. For example you might want to set an audible alert when the scanner stops on a particular freq or you could set that freq as a priority. Its up to you.
