FEATURES:

  • Up to 2,500 Dynamically Allocated Channels - Plenty of storage for the race track and beyond. 1,600 channels typical. Actual capacity depends on features used. Your scanner’s memory is organized so that it more closely matches how radio systems actually work, making it easier to program and use your scanner and determine how much memory you have used and how much you have left.
  • Racetrack operation - Easily program and select the race and drivers you want to listen to.
  • Officially licensed by NASCAR, a registered trademark of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing Inc.
  • Enemy Zeroize Memory - When your scanner is in danger of enemy capture, the BCD396T 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 RF Capture Technology - You can you can set the scanner so it detects and provides information about nearby radio transmissions. Quickly tune to signals from nearby transmitters.
  • Alpha Tagging - Makes it easy to identify the driver talking.
  • Preprogrammed with NASCAR, Craftsman, Indy, ARCA, Champ series and BUSCH driver race frequencies - So you'll be ready to listen when they are ready to roll.
  • Quick Race Programming – lets you quickly and easily enter information about a specific race.
  • Quick Key System Access - You can set the scanner so you can select a race or systems and groups by pressing a single key. This makes it easy to listen to or quickly lock out those systems or groups you don’t want to scan. Quickly select the systems or race you want to hear by pressing the 0-9 keys.
  • Quick Car Select – You can set the scanner so you can select and listen to a car by pressing a single key.
  • Pager Screen – You can set the scanner so it ignores hits generated by common pager frequencies while using the Close Call or search features.
  • Wide Frequency Coverage - 25-54, 108-174, 216-225, 400-512, 806-956 MHz - Indicates the range of frequencies that can be searched within the bands of your scanner. (Note: The frequency coverage is not totally continuous from 25.0 MHz to 956 MHz and excludes cellular telephones.)
  • CTCSS/CDCSS - (Continuous Tone Controlled Squelch System - 50), (Continuous Digital Controlled Squelch System - 103). When activated, the Sportcat will only tune to a frequency if the associated CTCSS tone or CDCSS tone you have programmed is included with the transmission. You can also use this feature to search for a CTCSS tone or CDCSS tone when monitoring a transmission. Lock in and display the currently used tone instantly. Also prevent other radio systems from interfering with the drivers you want to hear.
  • Specific 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.
  • 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 and county all hazards warning. The BCD396T 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/indexnw.htm#sametable.
  • Weather Channels - Lets your scanner function as a weather information radio.
  • 10 Programmable Search Ranges - Help you find unlisted frequencies in use in your area.
  • 12 Preprogrammed Service Searches - Public Safety, Railroad (by channel), Air, Marine (by channel) CB (by channel) GMRS/FRS (by channel), Weather, Ham Radio, News Media and Special.
  • Lockout – You can lock out any system, group, frequency, or channel while scanning. If you lock out a system or group, any channels belonging to that system or group are also locked out.
    You can lock out up to 200 frequencies. The scanner skips locked-out frequencies while using the Close Call feature or while searching.
  • Dropout Delay – You can set whether the scanner pauses at the end of a transmission to wait for a reply. You can set the delay time for each system you scan, and while searching and using the Close Call feature.
  • Attenuator – You can set the scanner’s attenuator to reduce the input strength of strong signals by about 18 dB received by the scanner.
  • Repeater Reverse – You can set the scanner so it switches to the input frequency on a conventional repeater system.
  • Channel Alert – You can set the scanner so it alerts you when there is activity on any channel you specify.
  • Memory Check – Lets you see at a glance how much total memory is left.
  • Frequency Step – Lets you select a frequency step (5, 6.25, 7.5, 10, 12.5,15, 20, 25, 50 or 100 kHz) for manual mode and chain search mode. The scanner’s auto step feature lets you set the scanner so it automatically chooses the correct step.
  • Quick Recall – Lets you quickly select a specific channel by choosing the system, group, and channel.
  • Scan/Search Delay – You can set the scanner so it remains on a frequency up to 5 seconds after the last transmission to wait for a possible reply.
  • Text Tagging – You can name each race system, conventional system, group, channel, custom search range, and SAME group, using up to 16 characters per name.
    Unique Data Skip – Allows your scanner to skip unwanted data transmissions and reduces birdies.
    Duplicate Frequency Alert – Alerts you if you try to enter a duplicate name or frequency already stored in the scanner.
  • Memory Backup - If power is lost of disconnected, the SC230 retains the frequencies you programmed in its memory.
  • Search and Store Operation - Automatically stores found frequencies in use in your area.
  • Auto Backlit Display - The Sportcat can turn on its backlight automatically when it finds a transmission if this function is activated. Easy night time operation. Uniden's patented baclight-on-squelch feature illuminates only when there is channel activity.
  • 2 AA battery operation - Provides flexibility in choice of batteries. When you purchase your SC230 from Communications Electronics, you get 2 rechargeable premium 1,800 mA NiMH AA batteries. You can also use alkaline AA batteries for long life.
  • PC interface - Both programming and remote control of your scanner features are available from a your PC. Demo software is available for free download.
  • On-air programming - Using a separate radio transmitter, you can make programming multiple BC230's a snap. Just transmit the driver information using a PC and transceiver and all scanners are updated over the air, at once. Click here to purchase your programmable radio transceiver.
  • Twin Turbo: Scan & Search - This lightning-fast technology enables the Sportcat to scan nearly 100 channels per second. Search speed is selectable between 100 and 300 steps per second. (300 steps per second only in bands with 5kHz steps.) Because the frequency coverage is so large, very fast scanning and searching are essential.
  • 22 Frequency Bands - Includes 22 bands with Aircraft & 800 MHz plus Band Search.
  • 29 MHz - 956 MHz - Indicates the range of frequencies that can be searched within the bands of your scanner. (Note: The frequency coverage is not totally continuous from 29.0 MHz to 956 MHz.)
  • 10 Priority Channels - You can assign one Priority Channel in each Bank. Assigning priority channels allows you to keep track of activity on your most important channel(s) while monitoring other channels for transmissions. (Priority Channels are initially set in the first channel in each Bank.)
  • Memory Backup - The stored channels are retained in memory permanently.
  • Programmable Alpha Characters - You can program up to 200 channels with alphabetical characters for easy reference.
  • Band Search - You can search within the preprogrammed bands.
  • Limit Search - You can search within a specific range of frequencies.
  • VFO Search - You can search by using the VFO control.
  • Alert Beep - If the Sportcat 230 finds a transmission on a channel you have present, it beeps twice.
