BCT15 FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS:
- Fire Tone Out Decoder
—This feature lets you set the BCT15 to alert you
if your selected two-tone sequential paging tones are received.
Ideal for on-call firefighters, emergency response staff and for
activating individual scanners used for incident management and
population attack warning. To purchase a Fire Tone Out Encoder transceiver,
useful for remotely activating fire pagers, tornado and enemy tactical
attack siren warning systems, click
- 2,500 Dynamically
Allocated Channels in Up To 500 Systems —
provides you with plenty of room for all your local action.
Warning System — alerts you when channels
normally used by public safety systems are in use nearby.
- State-by-State Preprogrammed
Channels — let you easily keep up with activity
on local police, Department of Transportation, and Highway Patrol
frequencies when you travel, without having to program any channels.
- Enemy Zeroize Memory
- When your scanner is in danger of enemy capture, the BCT15 zeroize
memory feature deletes all preprogrammed data by holding down the
2, 9 and hold keys while turning the scanner on. Erasing memory
deprives the opposition of sensitive programmed frequency and talk
group designator information which could be used for intelligence
purposes. A useful feature for helping you win the global struggle
against violent extremism.
- Close Call™
Radio Frequency Capture Technology –
Close Call exclusive technology locks onto nearby radio transmissions,
even if you haven't programmed anything into your scanner. This
is the easiest way ever to keep up with what is going on around
you. Ideal for intelligence agencies for use at events where you
don't have advance notice or knowledge of the radio communications
systems and assets that you need to intercept and monitor.
- Close Call Do Not
Disturb — checks for Close Call activity in
between channel reception so active channels are not interrupted

Area Message Encoding (S.A.M.E.) weather alert - S.A.M.E.
is NOAA’s coded emergency weather signals that identify a specific
geographic area affected by an emergency. In weather alert with
S.A.M.E. mode, your scanner functions as a county specific all
hazards warning radio. To obtain further information about S.A.M.E.
and FIPS code, visit http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/index.html.
feature allows you to input a six-digit code Federal
Information Processing System (FIPS) code that will designate
a localized severe weather warning and county all hazards warning.
The BCT15 can decode the 6-digit
FIPS code established by the National Weather Service (NWS). This
FIPS code identifies geographic areas anywhere in the United States,
US territories and US possessions. Programming the FIPS code is
necessary to receive S.A.M.E. alerts about weather occurring in
a particular area. To obtain a FIPS code for your area, call the
National Weather Service toll free at 1-888-697-7263 or visit
