Re: [BCD396XT] Odd "Feature" in BCD396XT
- I tried this with my 396XT with ProScan, FreeScan, and ARC
XT. FreeScan and ARC XT behave as you described. ProScan logs the
receptions to both the History grid and the Frequency / TG IDs
Logging grid even if the volume is set to "0".
Of course, you can set the volume to 1 and plug in a set of
headphones and sleep through the night unless you are a very light
sleeper. :-) A dummy plug would shut off the speaker, but it could
be that the lack of some load might be detrimental to the well being
of the scanner so the headphones would seem the safer choice. I run
my audio through the computer's sound system so I just mute the
computer audio output from my keyboard and head to the bedroom.
