• 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:

Hey Guys & Ladies,

I can not get the Uniden BCD996XT scanner to work with these two programs at all one minute it'll work and one day it wont...The ARC-XT pops up saying check 1 and FreeScan says Incompatible scanner? I'm using the Uniden USB-1 plug with the driver software. Not sure what's causing this problem.

Due to this intermittent problem occurring with both programs, it may be a dirty or bad USB jack or a bad cable. USB jacks are notorious for collecting dust. Have you tried another port?

I found the problem it was a easy fix. The problem was the baudrate kept wanting to go to 19600 instead of 115000 so after setting the rate on 115000 it cleared up both programs. Woo hoo. :D
