• 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:

Hi,

I have built a remote display for the 780XLT. Used a 2 line display and a microcontroller and a bit of assembly code. I can display the frequency and alpha tag plus 2 buttons, MAN and SCAN.. , if both are pressed it will goto the weather. Once I get it into a case I plan to post pics. Anyone else try something like this?

Cool!!

Yes!! The project is just begging to be built. All the hard word is done already, gathering up the chips+ writing the code is the hardest part. I built this from parts in the junk drawer. Thanks for sharing.
