I have the scancat lite plus program and I am having trouble getting it to
download the race frequencies to transfer to the radio shack radios. I bought
the special plug. I'm sure it just because I don't know what I am doing. I
would greatly appreciate your help.
Mr. Scanner sells a CD-ROM that has a listing for the 50 States for Police and Public Safety, but no one makes a similar list for NASCAR, as they change from race to race.
This is a website we "recommend" as they list about 5-6 races, and the frequencies, drivers and car numbers.
Problem is there is no way to directly "import" these into Scancat.
What we recommend is using EXCEL or a similar software product as a "conduit" to be able to cut from one application and paste into Scancat.
So, Here is a short tutorial on how to get Nascar Web pages into Scancat.
IF you have EXCEL, Here is how to do it in 1-2-3-4 step fashion.
1 - Go to one of the Racing sites and get one of
the frequency lists on your screen
2 - At the top or your "browser" choose
Save Page as
Save Target as
and choose to save the file as "Full HTML"
3 - Then start both
Scancat _and_ EXCEL
4 - From Within EXCEL use "Load file"
and pick the HTML file you just saved
The Frequencies will be displayed in EXCEL in rows and columns
5 - Using your mouse highlight a column of frequencies
and Holding down the CTRL Keyboard key Press "C" (COPIES)
HINT - If you have the frequencies AND the DRIVERS in adjacent
columns, you can copy TWO columns at a time into Scancat.
6 - Then Go to Scancat, place you mouse where you want to start
PASTEING, and press CTRL + "V" (Pastes)
This will copy what you highlighted (and copied)
From EXCEL into Scancat's Database.
Just continue with this until you have everything you want "copied" Into our Database grid
SAVE THE WORKING FILE...... <gg>
