Rangecast FAQ
[FAQ-1192] Error message: BAUD RATE (Code 48)


Page Type: SYMPTOM


SUBJECT

The Uniden 536 model scanner can enter a state where the scanner's data communications port operates at the wrong speed, and cannot be automatically set to the correct data rate from the Rangecast feed site software. The data rate can be fixed manually (on the scanner's keyboard) or remotely (via special software). Until this is done, the scanner will not provide audio to the Rangecast system.


METHOD

The scanner's data communications rate must be reset via keypresses navigating the Uniden scanner menu structure. This can be done manually by pressing keys, or remotely by Rangecast (via remote desktop software) using special software to perform this function.
