• 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:

    Whistler ws1080 is missing folders

    My WS1080 only has these folders on the SD card: CDAT LOG REC Is there a way to get all the other folders mentioned in the manual back on the card so I can use the scanner again? (like BTMP, DB, MTMP, STMP, etc) Somehow I managed to delete those today and can't use the scanner. Thanks, Mike

    Searching the Database

    Is there a way to search the database on RadioReference database for users in the 30-33 and 47-50 MHz portion of low band in a specific state? I've looked at the search feature and don't see a way to drill down to a specific range of frequencies. Might be newbee issues.

    Uniformity of Database

    I'm going to catch a lot of flak for this but, There's no uniformity of Service types in the Database. Sometimes state DOTs are listed as Public service, sometimes as transportation.

    Can we get C4FM Added to the Database ?

    Can we get C4FM Digital Mode by Yaesu added to the Database ? My Database Admin said there is no way he can add C4FM to the database. It does not give him an option. So he has to use p25. It is not P25 and no P25 Digital scanner can decode C4FM. The Database Admin is stuck with adding it as a...
