copy it (as in, just right click or Ctrl C, that kind of 'copy') and use EZ Grab in FreeScan to import it. You can specify comma separated entries, or space separated entries.. etc you get the picture.

FreeSCAN / Blind Person Wishing To Use FreeScan
« Last post by pdevasto on April 17, 2018, 11:37:40 AM »
I am a new member who happens to be totally blind. I'm about to get a BCD325P2 scanner and was hoping to be able to use FreeScan to help me set it up. I've downloaded the program, and see there is what's called a "blind-friendly" mode available. It does have lots of useful keyboard shortcuts, but I'm having trouble figuring out if there's a way I can edit specific fields. I'm running Windows 10 64-bit, and I've worked closely with computers and screen reading software all my life. Are there any other blind users of FreeScan out there? If not, can someone perhaps give me some suggestions about how to get to fields that need editing, like frequencies, system/group names, etc.?
Thank you in advance,
Pete De Vasto

Hi All,
Nickolas here from England.

Got a UBC3500XLT and a friend has given me his UK frequency list. it's Looooooooooooooooong.
It's in .csv. Is there any way it can be converted into ANY format that can be uploaded to the scanner.

Many thanks in advance,

Still no reply, even by email. The issue is a bug of some sort with Windows 10. I now have to wire my radio to a laptop with Vista Home on it to get the tone and duration. I was kind of hoping this would have been sorted by now. The new release doesn't fully work either.

Downloaded from 996P2 into freescan and colour codes change from:
example; CC1 now became 1001
I can understand that.
But now I erased everything from the scanner and uploaded from Freescan to 996P2
In the nac field where the colour codes and related numbers were they were now:
FFFF in that field for all DMR entries.


Many thanks for the DMR additions! Further to the above info, in conventional system programming when you upload from a DMR enabled scanner to FreeScan the DMR Colour Codes show up in the "NAC" field in the format 100x.

Downloading from radio, DMR Colour Codes (CC) will present as "NAC" values of 100x:
CC 0   > SRCH
CC 1 > 1001
CC 2 > 1002
CC 3 > 1003
CC 4 > 1004
CC 5 > 1005
CC 6 > 1006
CC 7 > 1007
CC 8 > 1008
CC 9 > 1009
CC 10 > 100A
CC 11 > 100B
CC 12 > 100C
CC 13 > 100D
CC 14 > 100E
CC 15 > 100F

FreeScan will read and save these values, however if the value is modified or is written to the radio they become FFF. Also note that conventional systems set with the NAC field as 'SRCH' in FreeScan will search for both DMR CC and P25 NAC.
FreeSCAN / Won't download a particular system from BDC996P2
« Last post by FreqMeister on March 18, 2018, 11:58:51 AM »
I have 3 trunking systems defined in FreeScan and all 3 would both upload and download without problems. I then had the scanner do a SEARCH AND STORE on one of the systems and it found several new TGIDs. I did FreeScan download to add the new found TGIDs to FreeScan's database and was surprised the entire system was removed from FreeScan! The missing system shows up in the download dialog but it's as if it just skips over it when doing the download. Even starting from scratch with a new file FreeScan refuses to download that system from the scanner despite still showing it in the download dialog.

For what it's worth I installed a demo of ProScan and it downloaded the system, and all the found TGIDs, just fine. I'd rather not pay $50 and use FreeScan instead but this is a fatal problem. Should I try going back to an earlier version of FreeScan?
