• 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:

    XTL 5000 & W3 Control Head?

    I have an XTL5000 800MHz that is headless. There are two db25 pin connectors on my radio. Is the XTL5000 capable of working with the W3 head? Has anyone had any success in making this work?

    I have programmed an XTL5000 that has a tone after the normal MDC1200 keyup (wait to talk) tone. This tone is just a short beep but it's not the short side tone beep because it does it both on MCD and ASTRO channels. It's approx 500ms into the key up. The system we are using is Analog...
