• 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. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. 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:

I entered several Las Vegas ZIP codes, including my friend's ZIP code, 89117 (Summerlin) and I never saw the "new" P25 Phase II system come up on the scanner. Worked...

    ARC-XT Pro Scanner Reading Issue

    Has anyone ever had any issues while reading your scanner? By issues I mean it will read to a point and stop? That point is different each time. The software if left alone will read a system every 10-20 seconds. I have 50+ stations so it takes a long time to read them all. I am running ARC-XT...

    ARC500: Not happy with Butel...

    So I bought a RS Pro 652 with the cable that came with the software of the regular version of ARC 500. So last week I decided to upgrade it to the Pro version. They request the keys to the old software. As from other posts this was an issue. Thankfully I paid with PayPal. I have been arguing...

    Unable to capture city information

    I am using ARC-XT-PRO When I go into the database here, I can pull up by state, then by county and select which type system. Or I can pull up by agency. However, when I pull up NC and Hoke County, I do not get any listings for the town of Raeford. I can get that info if I come direct in and not...

    Scanner display screen saver

    I'm using an older flat screen monitor that shows two virtual scanner displays (996t and 996xt). (ProScan software on Dell Optiplex running Windows XP SP3 if it matters) Since the monitor is on 24/7, I'm concerned that they will "burn" into the screen. Does anyone know of any screen saver...

    Programming the IC-R6 with Butel ARC 6 Software

    I have a newly purchased Icom IC R6 receiver, Icom cloning cable as well as the Butel Software. The information on how to use this software regarding uploading data is scant to non existant in the Radio user manual and the ARC 6 help file. A call to ICOM was not any more enlightening.
