   The Bearcat TrunkTracker BC898T is the updated version of the world famous BC895XLT scanner. Trunktracker III upgraded allows you to keep up with the action on Motorola (Type I, Type II, and Hybrid on VHF, UHF, 800 MHz and 900 MHz) EDACS and LTR systems. Now its easy to monitor fleets and subfleets in analog trunked radio systems. The BC898T can also work as a conventional scanner. This 500-channel, programmable base station scanner provides scanner users with uninterrupted monitoring capabilities of Type I, II, IIi and hybrid trunking systems. One of the biggest obstacles in coordinating emergency response has been the increasing use of trunking radio systems in business and public service agencies throughout the U.S. and Canada. This makes it nearly impossible to track a conversation as it moves within a trunk system from frequency to frequency. During a disaster, its essential to be able to monitor response agencies for proper coordination. You can enhance your national, state and local security preparedness by being able to continuously monitor conversations even though the message is switching frequencies. Not compatible with AGEIS, ASTRO and ESAS systems.

FEATURES:
  • 500 Channels - You can program each of these memory channels to store one frequency.
  • 10 Banks - Ten banks of 50 channels are useful for grouping similar frequencies and selectively scanning these groups.
  • Signal Strength Meter - The BC898T signal strength meter displays the relative strength of an active transmission using up to five separate indicators.
  • Subaudible Tone Search - Lets the BC898T search for and identify agencies transmitting CTCSS or DCS tones. You can identify up to 50 CTCSS tones and 104 DCS tones. This helps you find stations using these tones.
  • 17 Bands - Includes 17 bands, including aircraft and 800 MHz. excluding cellular telephones.
  • Trunk Scan and Scan Lists - Scan for activity on one trunk group or create lists of multiple groups to scan like police, fire, emergency, etc.
  • 10 Priority Channels - You can assign one priority channel in each bank. Assigning a priority channel lets you keep track of activity on your most important channel(s) while monitoring other channels for transmissions.
  • Variable Frequency Oscillator Control - The V.F.O. (Rotary Tuner) feature enables rapid and easy selection of channels and frequencies.
  • Auto Store - This feature automatically searches out and stores frequencies to an available channel location in any bank and automatically returns to find the next active frequency.
  • National Weather Radio - Can be programmed to receive special localized weather warnings broadcast by NOAA and Environment Canada. The scanner is compatible with warning siren and message transmissions.
  • Specific Area Message Encoding (S.A.M.E.) weather alert - S.A.M.E. is NOAAs coded emergency weather signals that identify a specific geographic area affected by an emergency. Highly recommended by Communications Electronics, Emergency Operations Center for National Security and Emergency Preparedness (NS/EP). In weather alert with S.A.M.E. mode, your scanner functions as a county specific severe weather warning radio. To obtain further information about S.A.M.E. and FIPS code, visit http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/index.html.
  • FIPS Code - This feature allows you to input a six-digit code Federal Information Processing System (FIPS) code that will designate a localized severe weather warning. The BC796D 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 http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrsame.htm.
  • Chain Search - Lets your BC898T search up to 10 ranges by selecting specific banks into which you have programmed search ranges.
  • Frequency Step - Lets you select a frequency step (5, 6.25, 12.5 or 25 kHz) for manual mode and chain search mode.
  • Turbo Scan - This lightning-fast technology enables the BC 898T to scan and search nearly 100 channels or steps per second.
  • RS232C Port - Allows computer-control of the scanner via optional hardware.
  • Auxiliary Tape Output - The BC 898TT allows you to record your favorite transmissions while youre away.
  • Manual Channel Access - Go directly to any channel without stepping through other channels.
  • Memory Backup - If power is lost of disconnected, the scanner retains the frequencies you programmed in its memory.
  • Unique Data Skip - Allows your BC898T to skip unwanted data transmissions and reduces birdies.
  • LCD Back Light - makes the display easy to see in dim light. You can adjust the back light and even turn it off.
  • Scan/Search Delay - You can set the scanner so it remains on a frequency two seconds after the last transmission to wait for a possible reply.
  • Programmable Search - This feature allows you to find new frequencies in any of the bands.
  • Channel Lockout Key - This feature allows you to skip over channels you dont currently want to hear.
