• 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:

    Difference between XTS1500 and XTS2500?

    Is there a significant difference between an XTS1500 M1.5 and an XTS2500 M1.5? Or an XTS1500 M1 and an XTS2500 M1?

    XTS2500 Transmit Tones

    Hi Everyone, I remember reading on here somewhere that it was possible to transmit quik call tones from the XTS 2500. I cannot find that thread for the life of me. If someone could explain how to set it up in cps or could point me to the proper thread that would be a huge help. Thanks
