SET SERIAL PORT

I'm pretty sure you can use it that way. The only thing

You will need a null modem cable or null

If you don't trust the links, click on FILES and you will see the folder

Re: Recording

David O'Banion
 

I haven't used the DAR-101 for almost six years, 
and I don't remember how many hours fit on a card, 
but suffice it to say the number is a LOT. 
(Maybe 45 or so on a 16 GB?) 
The highest capacity card it can handle is 32GB. 
It has VOX, which Sangean calls VAR. 
If I remember correctly, recordings are Not time-stamped. 
Power is 4 AA cells or 9 volts AC --- not DC. 
I have always wanted to try using DC (it should work) but never got around to it. 
    
Because you want to go mobile, power (plus a few other things) might present difficulty, 
so maybe a different recorder would be better for you.       
Look at the Tascam DR-05 and all others you can find.  
     
     
My primary use for the recorder was the Gold Coast Net (goldcoastnet.com),  
a weekly 2-meter gathering that was and still is a lot of fun,  
rather than 911 calls and the like. 
Those I consider disposable --- if I don't hear them when they happen, they're of no value to me. 
    
Probably one of the most interesting things I ever recorded with the Sangean 
was the live audio (countdown, etc.) of a SpaceX launch from Vandenbeg AFB, 
which is about a 20 minute drive from where I live. 
It was on a frequency I didn't know about until maybe the day before, if not the same day,  
so catching it at all was a lucky thing.

I also have been looking for a good recorder for my BCT15X. Glad this

How much recording time on a 32GB at 192kHz?

Does it have an autostart/VOX mode to just record when it hears audio or
is it just continuous record?

Are the recordings timestamped?

How is it powered? I want to use it mobile.

Is there a downloadable manual? I went to the Sangean site, but get a
"404  file not found" error for the file.

I understand the BCT15X has a programming feature to select which
channels output audio to the record jack, but I haven't found how to
program that. Any advice?

Thanks,
Michael

Joe M.
I would like to apologize immensely for my stupidity.
I logged into Groups somehow without a Group email account.
After seeing my stupid mistake I logged into the Group with the proper account and had no problems
Downloading said ScanDisk Format Tool at the link you provided. In the below email text.

Why are you looking on the home page? There were two direct links sent.
If you don't trust the links, click on FILES and you will see the folder
there (it's currently the only one - super easy to find). Within that
folder is the file.

Other than paying a personal visit to download the file to your PC, I
really don't know what else I can do to make it any easier to get.

But that took me to the https://uniden.groups.io/g/main group home page.
I might be dumb, but I didn't see anything to do with the SmartDisk Format Tool.
There is not even a place to do a search for it either.

I just tried it and it DL'ed fine. Are you sure you are clicking the

Regardless, I'll provide an alternate DL link in a minute.

No problem. ASAIK that is the only program that will properly format
larger cards. Can you try the DL again? (just want to make sure it's not
permanently dead)

Sorry Joe M.
I didn't mean to step on your toes..
I tried that link you sent to him and was going to save it in case I
ever needed it.
It wouldn't download. So I kept that other link.

Again, Sorry......!

Per their own FAQ:

"SDHC/microSDHC card: FAT32 more than 2GB and up to 32GB"

That one will not work for his card.

The link I posted works here.

Well you either need to select FAT (not exFAT) or use another tool.
This
is the one in the video so it's known to work:
