sctl is used to control the Bearcat BC895xlt, BC245, BC780, and Radio Shack PRO-2052 trunk tracking scanners. It can read and set memory contents and a numerous settings, and will display and change the current status (e.g. scanning, trunk scanning, etc.). It can also download/store and upload memory bank contents.

    Release Notes: This release contains one bugfix (reported mode on the BC895 was incorrect), and one new feature. The new feature is called "idreport", and is a mode that reports interactively when talkgroup ID reception begins and ends. This feature is great for logging along with timestamped audio.

      Release Notes: Changing the line-ending convention from expecting \r from the radio to expecting \n, which fixes a bug where certain scanners changed this convention.

        There's a Bearcat 295 (I think) that is computer programmable. If you have a scanner that claims to be computer programmable, give it a try. The scanner I'm developing for is a desktop model, but I'd guess the handheld uses either the same or a simlar protocol. Use the "status" command to test at first, since it doesn't set values, just queries them.

        Hmm. Any idea if this program works with the RadioShack programmable handheld that's virtually identical to that (i think that one) bearcat?

        Bearcat scanners freak out, film at 11
        My scanner started returning a \n instead of \r to end a line today, so I'm working on an update to fix that. If you're using this program, stay tuned. I am *very* interested to know of anyone else having this problem.
