Jamie,

  The backlight for this scanner can be turned off or set to automatic
(illuminates each time the squelch is broken).  To switch between
the modes, hold the light button for a couple of seconds.   Great
radio!

I'm getting ready to purchase the BC245XLT TrunkTracker, but I just have one
question:

I understand the backlight comes on whenever there is a transmission, is there
any way to disable that feature if necessary? I tend to sleep with my scanner
near my head so I don't miss anything during the night, and that light could
damn near drive me nuts! LOL

Thanks in advance!

This is an option and can be turned on and off at your discretion.

If a BC245XLT is in the dark forest, and the backlight comes on, is there
any light?     :)

Sleeping with a scanner would drive me nuts.

hold down the light button for a few seconds, you will hear a beep and it is
turned off. do the same to turn it back on.
It is a great radio, my third scanner and I like it the best
