BCD325P2 Bandscope inop with FreeSCAN setup
« on: June 20, 2018, 08:39:49 PM »
I use FreeSCAN Easy-Grab (not web import) to set up  this rebanded system to BCD325P2 using Radioreference data :

San Francisco County/City
Location:   San Francisco, CA
County:   San Francisco
System Type:   Motorola Type II SmartZone
System Voice:   Analog and APCO-25 Common Air Interface

001 (1)    CERS (Public Safety)   851.125a    851.150a    851.400c    851.425c   851.5875    851.6125     851.7625    851.8125    852.0875     852.2125    852.2625    852.3875    852.675    852.8375     853.0875       853.225    853.4125     853.4375    853.625   853.650    853.7875    853.8875    
003 (3)    PERS (Public Works)   851.250    852.3625c   852.0625   852.8625c     853.250a   853.8125a    856.2375      857.2375
Trunking works OK except :
When using Band Scope Mode by manual instruction, only get inop tone.

Using Band Scope Mode:    
To Start Band Scope Mode Hold on any channel and press Func then 3(sr 3) to start Band Scope mode at the frequency you held at. Band Scope mode is assigned to this search key (3) by default.

Reset scanner, Band Scope works:
Scanner Reset to initialize the scanner's memory, turn off the scanner. Then press 2, 9, and Hold while turning it on.

Also when I use another program ARC-XT to set up, Bandscope works.
So I confirm FreeSCAN causing the Band Scope Mode inop.

On the FreeSCAN virtual scanner screen, the # 3(sr 3) key to start Band Scope inop.
I think this is the problem.

On ARC-XT & ProScan  scanner screen, # 3 key works like using the scanner keyboard direct.

Anybody has this issue ?

Personally I don't use bandscope.
