Try booting with Ubuntu, to prove the computer really works. Then try a system restore to put it back to running W10. When my Gateway W7 laptop automatically tried to upgrade itself to W10, it bricked itself. I was ready to throw it out until I booted it with Ubuntu. Good luck.

Are any of you running Windows 11 with Sentinel? If so,I’ll need to buy another laptop.

I don't have a supported scanner to try and transfer data, but the program itself opens and runs fine in Windows 11.

I am using an HP all-in-one desktop and upgraded to Win 11 last month. All my Amateur Radio and scanner programming software run without issues. Are you having issues? Or just asking a general "info only" only question?


Re: BCT15X Sensitivity

Rick NK7I
 

It's unlikely that it's a balance problem, since a scanner works with such a wide variety of antennas; tuned for the bands or not, including a simple whip (where impedance for say, 50 MHz would be WAY off).  It's not generally a place to try weak signal reception (hopefully) where impedance really matters.


It could be a weak/dead port on the multicoupler, failed (if it ever worked) connector/coax to the scanner or a dead receiver.  Reloading the programming (and/or firmware) would be in the list of things to try.  Murphy happens (all too often).


Start simple, does it receive weather broadcasts on a whip antenna? Work up from that.  Try another scanner in it's place.  Follow tests in a logical clear fashion to localize where the problem/s lie.


Merry Christmas,

Rick NK7I

It is a new Stridsberg active multicoupler that is described as providing the same unattenuated signal to each of 8 BNC outputs, so i doubt that changing ports will have an effect. But, no harm in trying.

Re: BCT15X Sensitivity

This mulicoupler, is it buffered by each having an built in attenuator? If not it could be an input impeadance/loading issue.

Try the discone direct to the radio first, then comeback.

The same with many aircraft comms; parking all receivers on the same freq. the ICOM misses what the others hear. Close Call is disabled and there is 0 attenuation. Am I overlooking another setting?

Have you tried swapping multicoupler ports?

Re: BCD536HP No audio on P25 Trunk Phase 1 System none simulcast system

Leslie Polt
 

Does the scanner properly receive any other programmed P25 trunking systems, simulcast sites or otherwise? Did you park the scanner on one of the frequencies in the system (not a control channel) to see if any of the transmissions are received. You may need to wait for a transmission, and  probably will not hear the entire conversation,  but it might tell you that the receiver is decoding P25 digital transmissions, but  not trunking.

*Hi Tim,**

**I was going to recommend ProScan - that is what I use.

I saw in your other post that you circled Mute. I would set it to OFF and see what happens.**

Hi Don,
I have the original uniden software and proscan software. I have done a factory reset (2,9,Hold Power on) and then tried to upload the program from uniden software and after i turn off the radio and back on it goes back into mute mode. the mute goes off if i hit the mute button. the weird thing is i bought my second 796 this summer and i did not have the mute issue until i started using the software. now it always powers on in mute mode just like my first 796. any other thoughts?
