Custom Scanner Programming


For those of you looking to buy a new scanner please private message me on the Niagara County Fire Wire Facebook Page before buying. I'll give you the best recommendation on what to buy & where to get it based on your needs and budget. So many people spend money only to find out it is incompatible or overpriced.

I will custom program any capable scanner new or used for you with the following features.

1- Upgrade scanner to the latest firmware

2- Install the entire Niagara County digital system (or any other county) plus any extra channels you would like.

3- If your scannner is playing garbled channels it was programmed incorrectly and i will correct that problem.

4- Delete all of the extra channels that are not needed.

5- Create banks so you will be able to easily turn on and off indvidual channels or departments.

6- Your scanner will display exacty what radio is talking with my personal radio id file which has over 2500 radio id numbers programmed.

7- When i am done i will show you how to use your scanner and answer any questions you have.

8- I will have your scanner programmed in 1 hour and i will print out your custom list of channels.

9- If your scanner is a Radio Shack & you let them program it,you are missing things and you won't have much control of the scanner. I can also fix that for you

Here are the scanners in order that i recommend that can receive the Niagara County Digital system.

1 Uniden-SDS100,SDS200,BCD536HP,BCD436HP,BCD325P2,BCD996P2

2 Unication-G5

3 Whistler- WS1040,WS1065 these are older and do not decode the digital as weel as the Unidens do

4 Radio Shack- PRO-651,PRO-652 these are older and do not decode the digital as well as the Unidens do

There are a few others that will work but in my testing they do not work very well.

If your scanner has a zip code mode method do NOT use it. You will get 100's of extra channels from miles away that you will have no interest in. Also you will have very little control with turning things on and off and you wil end up missing most of the things that you reallly want to hear.

North Tonawanda Police now has their own separate channel. If I have already programmed your scanner you will need it updated to have it display correctly and to be able to able to toggle that channel off and on.
