• 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.

    HPE files for VIC?

    Hi, Just procured a new SDS100 and am starting to wrap my head around Sentinel - it is obviously very US/Canada centric, but with the release of this and similar models in Australia, I was hoping to find an easy way to import frequencies into the SDS100...from what I can gather, Sentinel HPE...

    Migrating from BC436 to SDS100, can it be done?

    I am sure someone has already done it or provided reference on how to do it...so excuse the redundancy. Waiting on the SDS100 to come in and already have a BC436 that has all the FL and other settings the way I like them Is it "that" easy to just write the 436 profile to the SDS100? Or am I...

    BCD536HP: Unit ID Data Entry within Sentinel

    I know that I can enter Unit IDs with ARC536PRO and/or ProScan software or directly using the front panel of the BCD536HP scanner. But for the life of me, I cannot see where to enter/edit the User IDs from within Sentinel. Is it not possible? :o Surely I must be blind and just cannot find where...

    Hi. I am trying to program in Virginia federal frequencies, but the ones that show at https://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Federal_(VA) do not show in the Sentinel database.

    BCD536HP: Sentinel install fails

    I am trying to install the latest Sentinel (1.07.05) on Windows 10. The installer says that .NET 2 is required, and gives me the option to install it. But that option takes me to the Microsoft general .NET install, and that tells me that .NET 4 is already installed on my system. What do I do now?
