Newest from Uniden/Bearcat, the BC950 XLT (also know as the BC780XLT) can be
modified for CMT coverage. Cut pin 20 of the main CPU at the PCB and lift it.
Then solder a bridge between pins 19 and 20. This will restore CMT coverage.
PROBLEM: If you have the CTCSS option installed, you will not be able to turn
it off! (The CTCSS option, that is.) If this is OK with you, then go for it,
otherwise consider which you need more, CMT or CTCSS! Also, the only known
difference between the two aforementioned scanners is that the 950 is labeled
(on the box) "Scanner World". Have fun!

Concerning the Uniden Bearcat 760xlt, the mod for the 950xlt does work
to restore lost freq. Disconnect pin 20 of the microprocessor from the
circuit board and connect it to pin 19. I bent the pin slightly and cut
it with the scissors of a swiss army knife then soldered an 1/8 lead
cut from a cap across the pins near the top of the chip. I've yet to
find any problem with this mod. But as always do so at your own risk.
