• 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:

Does anyone near Wilmington, NC offer any on-site consultative services? I'm brand new to "scanning" I have a huge antenna, a radioshack pro-197, and arc500pro software and I am struggling a good bit. I am a quick learner, I have pretty good computer skills, and ca$h. Please let me know if you can help me.

What kind of trouble are you having? There are a lot of people here who can help walk you through your problems without having to resort to paying someone a lot of money.

You already have a software program and you are a premium subscriber. Do you have the RS programmig cable?

Just post your problems and we will see what we can do to help.

I sat here and couldn't make heads or tails of it at first then it just worked out. Since you said your pc skills were good that puts you ahead of me somewhat. The software is very good and just take your time.

I have so many problems with this software, is there another way I can record digitally? It seems to lock up as soon as I walk away all the time, I'll sit there and everything works fine for 30 minutes, an hour or so....then I go do something else or leave for the evening only to find it's crashed. I was told it was a vista problem, so I upgraded to Windows 7, then my radioshack scanner usb cable wasn't supported so I rebooted an old XP laptop and tryed it...still having problems. I'm so frustrated.

help for the wilmington area

I have numerous v-scanners for the pro106/197 radios and have one for the New Hanover County/Wilmington/Brunswick county area. I travel there quiet a bit and and would be glad to clone my v-scanners to your radio. I've programmed numerous radios for people and never charge to help. Let me know if I can assist and how to make contact.
