Thanks for the help

Use this video to help with programming the radios (the best one i know of)

Here are the frequencies for BCA radios. Using CHIRP you should be able to program the Baofeng radio to work well with the BCA radios. I really didn't see the need for the privacy codes, so we all just use the straight channels and everyone is happy.

BC LINK-A 462.5625
BC LINK-B 462.6625 CTCSS 94.8
BC LINK-C 462.6375 CTCSS 131.8
BC LINK-D 467.5625 CTCSS 94.8
BC LINK-E 467.5875 CTCSS 97.4
BC LINK-F 462.675

Channel A and F have no privacy code (CTCSS)

The BC Link comes with preset channels from the factory:
A Channel 1 privacy code off
B Channel 5 privacy code 10
C Channel 4 privacy code 20
D Channel 8 privacy code 10
E Channel 9 privacy code 11
F Channel 20 privacy code off

I hope this helps.
