From what I can tell, that wasn't a modification. It was a voice/data logger that probably utilized the serial protocol to capture the channel log data.

Wygant Introduces New Screen Recording Solutions.

 
PORTLAND, Ore., June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital voice recording manufacturer Wygant has announced the introduction of screen-recording as a significant enhancement to its voice logging and quality monitoring systems. Encore(TM) Screen Recorder first began serving contact center customers in May 2005. Wygant, with over 20 years focusing on contact centers, has developed a native screen-recording application to integrate with the company's flagship products, Encore and CenterPlus(TM).

Re: Wygant modified BC796D "SOLVED"

Jim Dunn <dunnjimt@...>
 

Wygant was sold a few years ago. I found the CEO's name and emailed him at his new company. His reply:
 
I think that the modification is just to take the audio output and feed it to a connector that allowed us to read data on the PC.
David Lezak, CEO - Movilix, a Telephone Access Company
 
I found on Radio Reference a reference that bypassing the record out port on the back gave a much better audo output. This must be that type of mod. It was interesting that they replaced the normal front plate on the BC796D and replaced it with one that said "Wygant Trunk Radio Recorder" in the space above the screen where it normally says "Bearcat Trunktracker IV". The scanner also has a larger female plug port on the rear plate too.

Hi Again,

Thanks for the feedback. I realize this scanner is an older version
of the Uniden line of scanners. I had a BCD396T and a BCD996T and I
sold them to a member of the SEFLORIDA yahoo group. He now lives in
northern Georgia. I also had a BC250D and I got rid of it a long time
ago. Yes, I am a member of the SEFLORIDA group and have been for
years. I asked if anyone knew about these radios and got NO replies.
Yes, I do own several RS PRO-197s and a few PRO-106s. These work
flawlessly. Yes, I upgraded the firmware to the latest version. Yes,
the APCO card is installed in all three radios.

What I may do is write to Uniden directly and ask if they have a
local tech in my area. I will work on these radios until I get them
right or get rid of them. I buy and sell a lot of radios (both ham
and scanners) on eBay. I am aware of the get-together from the
SEFLORIDA group. Most of those guys are in Broward County and I am
not able to get down there very much. I know Mike Spivak from Mike's
Electronics for many, many years. He sells these latest radios. I
will ask him if he knows anyone in the area to help me fix these. I
don't believe any of them are defective. I just need to set them up properly.

Thanks, guys, I appreciate the help.

"When I press HOLD on a specific frequency and a signal
comes up on it, the scanner will pick it up very nicely. When I press
 SCAN, it just sits there like a bump on a log."

This sounds to me like it is not in the trunked mode or the trunked mode is
turned on, like suggested it is better to find local help on systems like these
because we cam all just guess as to what is happening. Check for the cards in
the two that aren't working and you might try cloning the one that is to the
other 2 and see if that makes a difference. When using programming software I
have seen a lot of times, you type in stuff and see it on the screen but when it
loads to the scanner it could be off as in not everything that needed to load
did. Since you mentioned that you had some other radios I assume your familiar
with trunking and how it works as far as the Control Channel goes.....

need to update your programming as well. I believe they have a get-together

There have been several firmware updates issued for the unit.

Hi Group,

I have three (3) Uniden BC796Ds. I am not happy with any of them. I
thought this scanner would be a good addition to my radio arsenal.
Evidently, I was wrong. I know Uniden makes a good scanner but I had
no idea how much trouble they would be.

Only one of these radios works the way it should. Even then, it gives
me a noisy static burst when a P25 signal comes through. It annoys me
very much. The audio quality is sometimes garbled when a signal comes
in. I know there is an audio adjustment but the manual is useless in
instructing me on how to improve it.

The other two 796Ds just sit there scanning away and not pick up a
P25 signal. The Palm Beach County radio system is a trunked system.
The county's system is analoged trunk. The particular city I live in
is Delray Beach, Florida and the police and fire/rescue departments
are digital. When I press HOLD on a specific frequency and a signal
comes up on it, the scanner will pick it up very nicely. When I press
SCAN, it just sits there like a bump on a log.

I had these radios programmed with PROSCAN, one of the better scanner
programs out there on the market today. I have read both the 796D
manual and PROSCAN instructions and both of them are like trying to
read a Chinese newspaper.

Is there anyone in this group who knows these scanners well and can
help me figure out what I can do to fix the problems I'm having with
them? I'd be very interested in hearing what to do to remedy my situation.

Thanks in advance!

Re: New Man on Board with Questions.

Joe M.
 

First, you need to verify that the P25 board is present in all three scanners.

Second, you need to perform the audio adjustment. I understand that you do not know how to do it, but that is most likely the reason for your issues (aside from the one mentioned above).

If all three were programmed, and only one is working, the issue has to be in the individual scanners.

The 796 is the first generation P25 scanner from Uniden. It is a far cry from the current P25 scanner offerings.

Re: WOW!

Mike MacDonald <mikemac52@...>
 

Sounds like something I'd do or have done.

Maybe I should not share this due to great embarrassment but. . .
After many l weeks of not receiving the Onondaga County interoperability
P-25 frequencies, thinking the P-25 board was burnt, the frequencies were in
wrong base, offset etc. the 796D was damaged, exploring all types of cures I
embarrassingly discovered that the control channel 460.500 was locked out.
Yes, for all dummies out there check the lock-out status and guess what? Yes
that is right, I receive all P-25 channels. Moral of the story: even a
retired electronics tech can lock himself out!
