Radioreference makes and has the database on their servers.

when you use the EZ-SCAN software, you download the database from Radioreference servers.

What I was told makes perfect sense because no individual has any rights to update any scanner privately from what I was told. And this carries over into what I said about IP rights. No individual has any rights to do anything with the software, scanners or anything privately PERIOD.

I don't know If I am right or not but someone is trying to defend himself in here and it's not working with me.

Folks, GRE's scanner business is dead. Out of business. Done. Those of you that question my assertion need to step back, look inward, and realize that you are throwing pennies into the well. There is no reason to beat this horse further.

If the intellectual property behind GRE's scanners makes a emergence with another entity that will be great news for the hobby. Otherwise, we're just awaiting a press release.

I'm closing this thread....

If I could somehow prove positive that you're trolling you'd be gone (or gone again?). Seeing remarks like this I have to shake my head. I think enough has been said to the validity of Craig and Don. I've never said anything about my involvement with GRE (due to an NDA at the time) but a small amount of people are riding the paranoia plane putting out those brainwashing contrails. I worked a lot with both Don and Craig on the GRE-500 project, worked with Craig previously on the PRO-96, and can attest to him being what made the GRE radios the quality they were. Notice the difference between the PRO-96 and the older GRE scanners? That's because of Craig.

And alexmahoney.. you cause one more dust up and I won't need a reason to ban you. You're pissing off enough members and that's enough for me.
If you PM me expect a long delay. Please use direct email for a quicker response.
