• 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:

    ProScan

    Can someone tell me what or how to use the FTP WRITE and FTP READ SCANNER can be used? I'm assuming you can update the scanner files via the LAN instead of plugging in the USB cable and I assume that is what the FTP WRITE/READ is for but I can not figure out on how to use it. Thanks.

    ProScan and TASCAM US 16x08?

    Does anyone have a TASCAM US 16x08? I was thinking of getting one or two to replace those cheap USB sound dongles. I had a question if the TASCAM would even work with ProScan. Do all 16 channels show up in Windows Recording Devices to appear in ProScan? Or would ProScan need to support ASIO to...

    Identifying idle frequencies

    I am running ProScan software on a bcd996T. The logging tab shows me a running list of the frequencies that have hit at least one time. Is there a way adding to that list the frequences or TGID's that are not "hitting". Maybe I am too far away and am just wasting time scanning by them.
