• 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 know I have seen a device that you can use plug your older analog radios and convert them to digital. Does anyone have knowledge of this? If so can you recommend a good one?

I believe you are referring to the AOR AR300

Here is the link

ARD300 | OTHER PRODUCTS | AOR,LTD. Authority On Radio Communications

Looking at the Site, AOR are not showing any firmware updates for it at all, and considering the number they issued for the AR-DV1 that is strange.

There are some references to upgraded firmware, but I cannot find any links.

Essentially it appears to be similar in specs to the original AR-DV1, re Digital Modes, and was released at about the same time.

It is not cheap either, you might feel it is not worth the investment as 'new' it is not that much cheaper than an AR-DV1.

If anyone reading this has any knowledge of firmware updates for the AR300, please post the details here.
