jim as per telephone conversation on 2/28/2005,please tell the steps i need to do in order to understand and start installing all the info from my bc 296 to the bc 246 software in the scancat lite 1.2.6. thanks. kevin taaffe(firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am presuming you have a RSD file from the frequencies in the BC296
If so, then here is what you would do
1 - Connect the BC246
2 - Go to tools / Create Backup Clone file
backup your radio in case you need to restore it.
3 - Click on "radio systems" (May say COnnect to radio)
When it is finished reading the entire radio
Go to FILES
> Save File
> Personal Database
save these systems etc as "OrigianalBC246.rsd"
4 - There are three buttons above the white "Systems List box"
a - RIGHT CLICK your mouse on "delete systems"
b - It will ask you if you want to delete all the systems
c - Click yes and wait until the radio shows it is "empty".
5 - Load the RSD file from your BC296
6 - Change to system 1 tab
7 - click the button that says "create (new) system"
8 - when it is finished, click YES to the popup prompt box
9 - Go to tab / system 2
10 - click the button that says "create (new) system"
Repeat steps 8 and 9 each time going to a new "tab" system
tab 3-4-5-6 etc
IN about 5 minutes you will now have those 10 systems from your BC296 loaded into the BC246
11 - click on "Systems in Radio" and let the database be updated with what is now in the radio
If you want to load any OTHER RSD files, even the one fromt he original BC246 just repeat the above steps and in minutes the BC246 will be loaded with anything you want to add to it.
