    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-668: Upgraded software to come?

    As anyone with one of these scanners is aware, there are several systems that the PRO-668 just isn't capable of monitoring (where other scanners are). ie: GE's Pro-Voice, Motorola's TRBO, ICOM's NXDN to name a few... Has anybody heard if there will be any kind of software/firmware upgrades...

    Software for the pro-668

    Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone out here knows where I can download the i-scan software? I deleted from my computer and now I can't reinstall it from the scanner. I think I may messed up something seriously. Is there a way to get just the i-scan sd card. Any help would be appreciated.

    Sold my Pro-106, looking at Pro-668 good or bad?

    Anyone out there have some feed back as to if they like the 668, if not why? My area (28540) went to P-25 Phase II. I sold the pro 106 for $150.00. Seemed like the going rate.
