• 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:

Some users have queried us as to if there are errors in the RR Database or the Web Service. While using various ARC software products to download EDACS Narrowband systems or networks, the ARC software is importing such systems as EDACS Standard.

We have checked our end and the data is being reported correctly via the Web Service XML output, but apparently is not be interpreted correctly by Butel's software. I am sure that they will address this shortly.

I noticed that when I imported the FLP EDACS system the other night, but though it was a mistake on my part. I fixed it locally and reloaded the 996 and it worked fine.

I tell you, using software and the import feature is the only way I want to program and reprogram these newer units with alpha tags and thousands of memories. My hat is off to the folks who worked to make this possible, and keep it working.

In the system settings you can simply change the type to Edacs Narrow system type.

This is of course one option, but since other webservice-capable software downloads the narrowband systems correctly, it seems that it would be possible for the ARC series to download these systems correctly without having to manually change the system type.
Is it a big deal? Not at all, but if someone is loading system quickly and isn't familiar with it, they may not catch that it is narrowband. Thanks, Grommert
