What does the BCtools do - does it alow you to listern to the radio through your pc. Sorry just a bit thick today - I have a UBC3500XLT

BCTool allows you to program and control some Beacat scanners from your PC it will work with the 3500XLT.

Thank you Blackthorn - I already have some software that I puchased - think it was from Butel. I was looking for some way of listerning through the pc.

Cheers

abrad41, if you connect you scanner output up to the input of the PC's sound card, then bctools offers the following feature - "Advanced recording features to provide unattended scanning, logging and recording"

"You can also configure bcTool to automatically record all received transmissions. Options are provided to automatically stop recording (and optionall move the scanner on) after a set duration, automatically delete short recordings, define filename structure and set recording format and bitrate."  See http://www.bctool.org/index.php?s=screenshots

I've never used it, but sounds like it would do what you want.
