Using the BearTracker Warning System
The BearTracker Warning System is a special part of the BearTracker System. When you press [HP/B], the scanner is set to alert you to transmissions of close by services. The BT display icon begins to blink. The BearTracker LED lights, and you hear a menu selected Alert Tone. Most highway patrol vehicles on the road today are equipped with a secondary radio system known as mobile extender or vehicular repeater. Whenever the dispatcher transmits to any vehicle in the district, mobile extender in every car within the district is activated. Every 2 seconds, the scanner checks for activity on BearTracker Warning System frequencies for your state (see Setting the BearTracker Options on Page 67 for information affecting all BearTracker Warning system options) to set how many frequencies the scanner checks during each cycle). The BearTracker Warning System frequencies includes frequencies used by mobile extender radios as well as by car-to-car, aircraft-to-car, and other special-purpose frequencies. You receive an audible (beep tone) and visual (flashing Alert light) alert whenever you are within an approximate three-mile radius of Highway Patrol/State Police units using a mobile extender unit.
Introduction to BearTracker Operation 59
Using the Menu
The Menu mode of the BCT15 is very powerful. Many settings require that you drill down multiple levels. This assures you the utmost flexibility and the ability to customize the operation to your specific requirements. To assist you to familiarize yourself and help you to become proficient using the menu, we have provided three sections. The first deals with general menu related operations and screen descriptions. The second shows a flow chart of the first and second levels which will get you most of the way when you want to set or revisit an option. The third addresses individual settings of the options that you must perform to get the most from the radios operation.
1. To enter the Menu mode press [MENU]. 2. To select an item from a menu list, rotate the Scroll Control you will see used as a shorthand character in this manual. 3. To select a specific item you have arrived at, press either [EYES] or press/tap the Scroll Control F is used as a shorthand icon in this manual for that action. 4. To return to any previous menu level or to cancel a menu choice before it is made, press [MENU] 5. To exit the Menu mode, do any of the following; Press [SCAN/SEARCH] to go to Scan mode. Press [HOLD/RESUME] to go to Scan Hold mode. Press [GPS] to go to GPS mode. Press [L/O] to return to the previous mode. Press repeatedly [MENU] to return, level by level, to the previous mode. 6.

F Search and Store F Select the system where you want to store the frequencies or talk group IDs F If no systems are programmed, No System Stored appears. If the selected system has more than 20 groups, Over Limit appears.
Location-Based (GPS) Scanning
The BCT15 uses data, supplied by an attached GPS unit, that lets the radio automatically unlock and lockout sites based on the geographical information you provide. Latitude (the center of the range or site) Longitude (the center of the range or site) Range (the radius of a circle around the latitude and longitude coordinates selected from up to 50 miles from that center). You set the longitude and latitude to approximate the center of a geographic entity such as your local city. Then set the range to encircle that center point. By doing so the scanner automatically locks out reception of an area outside that circle. All geopolitical areas are rarely perfect circles. You can accommodate these variations by entering multiple sites for the system, even though the system actually has only one site, and use different location settings for each of those additional sites. Figure A shows, schematically, an ideal reception situation. The area almost matches the site area. But Figure B is more like the real world. How do you effectively match the narrow geographical area to the circular site transmission? Figure C shows the answer. You create multiple sites for the scanner. You program the longitude and latitude, and the range, of each of the three sites to more closely match the geographic area.
Using the BCT15 with a GPS 127
Another Example of Multiple Site Creation The geographic area of Arlington, TX, is separated into multiple site locations to enable automatic lockout and unlock as one moves from area to area.
Non-Radio Location Based GPS Features
When connected to a GPS, you can program specific location information which will trigger an alert from the scanner. The scanner becomes an extension of the GPS device. The following geographical values are typical of use you might find valuable while traveling. Use the menu (begin with Program Location) to input the necessary data to enable each. Dangerous Xing Stores location, speed, and direction of travel. If you are in range, traveling greater than the set speed, and moving in the selected direction, the radio sounds an alert at 0.5, 0.25, and 0.1 miles (radius of a circle) from the point. These range distances are automatic and fixed. Dangerous Road Stores location, direction of travel, and speed. If you are traveling at a speed greater than that specified, in the direction specified, and if you are within range of the set location, the scanner sounds an alert at 0.5, 0.25, and 0.1 miles from the point. These range distances are also automatic and fixed. Points of Interest (POI) Stores location and range. If you approach the set location, the radio sounds an alert up to 2 miles from the center. Press F + [GPS] to choose a setting for Dangerous Xing, Dangerous Road, or POI.
To store your current location, press and hold [GPS] for more than 1 second. You are prompted to enter the type of entry (Dangerous Xing, Dangerous Road, or POI), as well as the other location parameters. When you set the beep type, you are next prompted to set the alert volume. While you are in normal GPS mode or Scan Mode and you press and hold [GPS] for about 2 seconds, location data at that point is stored. The scanner opens a dialog to store your current location. The default used is T YYMMDD hhmmss that indicates the date and time you stored the location point. T YYMMDD hhmmss T is the system type as follows: P-POI, R-DRD, X-DXG The file X means that a Dangerous Xing was stored in 2005, on October 20 at 10:25:54 The data is put into memory and you can designate the location as POI, Dangerous Xing, or Dangerous Road. However, if you are in Review Mode and press and hold [GPS], the data of the new point will overwrite the currently displayed data. The following table shows the attributes available for each category. Note that some options are different for a specific location type. Refer to the information that follows to set those specific attributes.
