• 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:

    Midland Texas PD and my Pro-164

    I own an BC-245XLT a Pro-164 and an HP. Mostly listen to the HP and use the others for aviation and other conventional. My daughter is a new MPD officer and so the wife's interest in listening to MPD is now high (which means she wants to carry the 245 or the 164 with her). I used ARC 300 to...

    Just saying hello!

    I've been pulling my hair out trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong with the trunking programming for my Pro-164. I have read SOOOO many posts and articles on the web.
