• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet.

They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    firmware for 396t

    I believe it was Upman who recently wrote a step by step article on how to upgrade your firmware. I'm trying to locate that article. I've searched the forums and the wiki with no luck. I'm at Ver 1.13.17, and wish to go to Ver 3.xx. Do I need any updates that are in between? Thanks, Al
