Re: Clear User Data on 3600 / 436

 

I have tried clearing the data in both the laptop and the radio. The radio doesn't seem to want to acknowledge it, the laptop does.

Joe you are correct. Just use sentinel “clear user data”. You can even leave the card in the scanner.

Why not just use a Uniden bc436hp scanner. I record my local police and fire 24 hours a day. It shows the time and date of each recording, is easy to transfer to PC, and once you have the scanner, is free.

I have tried that a lot, the programming can't find the card, which makes me think the cable is at fault

Well, that at least sounds like progress.  Since you say that the card is "registering" in your computer, try inserting it back into the computer, and using Sentinel to do the "Clear User Data" as mentioned earlier by Joe.

There’s at least a problem if it’s not “THE” problem.  You should format the card FAT, no exFAT.  You can try again by inserting the card into your computer and right clicking on the drive letter that represents the card.  Select “Format…”, but select “FAT” for the file system.  ***WARNING*** clicking on the wrong drive letter WILL result in formatting a difference drive and loss of data.

It says exFAT, |'m using the recommended formatter by Uniden / Avera. They sent it to me. This is not the card I'm using, I formatted a spare. The USB cable isn't registering on my device manager. I don't know if there os an upper limit on card size in GB.

Do you mean FAT or FAT32.
USB Flash work best with FAT32 especially if you wish to use then on other
than a Windows PC.

I think that leaves the only possibility as

Re: Recording

Walter Rymarczyk
 

The Sangean DAR-101 does have voice activated recording.  The recordings are time and date stamped, but I misspoke.  The time and date of recording are not in the file name but are shown on the recorder’s digital display on playback.  It can be battery powered (4 AA batteries) but also comes with an AC power supply.  The power supply is 9v.  It can charge NiMH batteries in the recorder with the AC power supply.  Max recording time has never been an issue with me with 32GB.  It depends on the recording quality, which can be 68, 128, or 192 kbps.  192 kbps is probably overkill for scanner recording.

One nuisance is that the SD card has to be formatted with ext4 file system, as used by Linux.  It must be formatted outside the recorder.  No problem if you use a Linux computer.  If you use Windows it can be done but is more work.

I have a pdf of the manual, but it’s not very useful.  If you want a copy, email me through my website, analogweather.com.

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?

It wouldn't download. So I kept that other link.

Re: Recording

Michael WA7SKG
 

I also have been looking for a good recorder for my BCT15X. Glad this works for you. Some questions, please.

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

Well, that at least sounds like progress.  Since you say that the card is "registering" in your computer, try inserting it back into the computer, and using Sentinel to do the "Clear User Data" as mentioned earlier by Joe.

There’s at least a problem if it’s not “THE” problem.  You should format the card FAT, no exFAT.  You can try again by inserting the card into your computer and right clicking on the drive letter that represents the card.  Select “Format…”, but select “FAT” for the file system.  ***WARNING*** clicking on the wrong drive letter WILL result in formatting a difference drive and loss of data.

Well you either need to select FAT (not exFAT) or use another tool. This

Re: Clear User Data on 3600 / 436

Joe you are correct. Just use sentinel “clear user data”. You can even leave the card in the scanner. 


Re: Recording

I bought a Sangean DAR-101 specifically to record from my BCT15X. 
Works beautifully.
Using the 192 kHz mode (best quality available with the DAR-101) is Highly recommended.

I have an Olympus DS-2, an older model.It was pricey but very capable. If you can buy one used I recommend it. The newer versions likely have much longer recording times. But the product is excellent and has many features.

All of that is good info, but does not apply to the Uniden scanners.

Extended File Allocation Table (exFAT)

The exFAT file system was introduced in 2006 and was added to older

<https://www.howtogeek.com/73178/what-file-system-should-i-use-for-my-usb-drive/>—designed
to be a lightweight file system like FAT32, but without the extra
features and over head of NTFS and without the limitations of FAT32.

Like NTFS, exFAT has very large limits on file and partition sizes.,
allowing you to store files much larger than the 4 GB allowed by FAT32.

*Compatibility*: Works with all versions of Windows and modern versions
of Mac OS X, but requires additional software on Linux. More devices
support exFAT than support NTFS, *but some—particularly older ones—may
only support FAT32.*

Ideal Use: Assuming that every device you want to use the drive with
supports exFAT, you should format your device with exFAT instead of FAT32.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
*While exFAT is generally ideal for flash drives. However, you may
sometimes need to format an external drive with FAT32 if exFAT isn’t
supported on a device you need to use it with.*

Sorry, I haven't followed the whole thread, but have you tried another USB cable? It's just a standard USB to Mini USB cable...

Thank you for that, I'll try it in the morning. I've been on here all day and my eyes hurt. I'm in the UK, 5 hours ahead of EST, 8 ahead of Pacific

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:

Joe M.
 

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.
