• 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:

    Search down?

    When I try to search forums, whether by thread or post, I get a 500 error. This was on a subforum search in the Uniden Tech Support part of the Scanners forum, if that helps.

    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.

    How do I search for a talkgroup?

    I've had a PRO106 for over a year now, but haven't really done anything with it outside of scanning the pre-packaged info for my city. In the past few days I've bought a cheap windows laptop, a copy of WIN500 and jumped into the deep end of the pool. The campus where I work has security guards...

    Regency R 1090 search function help

    I ran across this scanner and wanted to set it up and use it. I have little to no experience in setting up, programming, or the language used to describe the features on a scanner. Can anyone direct me to a free user manual to the r 1090? Or simply indicate the procedure for setting the range...
