Slaved Scan Program

Introduction

This program connects to two Uniden DMA computer-controlled scanners via two separate serial ports.  The program continuously queries each scanner to determine if it is stopped on a frequency.  If it detects that both scanners are stopped on the same frequency at the same time, it will command the "slave" scanner to continue scanning so that both scanners are never monitoring the same frequency.  The program will work with the following scanners:

BCD396T
BCD396XT
BCD996T
BCT15

I believe these scanners would also support it:
BC346XT
BR330T

Computer Requirements

  • Windows 2000 or later
  • Two free serial ports
  • .NET framework version 2.0 or later

Download & Installation

SlavedScan v1.2 Installer - Current "Untested Beta" Release  

Instructions

To use the program, simply specify the serial ports and baud rates for the two scanners that you are connecting to your PC, and click the "Start" button.  The program should query each scanner every 200 ms, and if it detects that both are stopped on the same frequency, it will command "Scanner 1" to resume scanning.
