    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.

    Pro-164 fmn?

    My local police just changed to 151.325 R D606 which I gather is "fmn", can I listen to this on a Pro-164? Currently I have it programmed in as "FM" as there is no "fmn" mode available to choose. If I leave it at FM will I receive the scanner traffic? Thanks?

    Radio Shack PRO-164

    Does anyone know of a program software similar to the WIN500, but for Radio Shack’s PRO-164 Scanner. There has to be something out there better than Scan Cat.
